    Tobacco/Nicotine Pesticide for CPs?

    Has anybody tried using a tobacco/nicotine solution as a pesticide for CPs? I've used some on the bushes surrounding my house and they seem to no insect damage compared to last year with tons of damage.

    Those class pesticides are probably ok for most CPs - caution on Pinguicula and Drosera - but as always test the pesticide first. Imidacloprid is a nicotinoid (based on nicotine) chemical and can often be used on most CPs with the usual cautions.
