    I bought mine at a garden shop. Not sure if you have a Petitti garden center by you, but check your local garden centers.

    It calls for 2TBSP per 1 gallon of water.

    Also how has its effects been? Aphids dead?
    I used 2 tsp (teaspoons) in a 32-oz mister of distilled water.

    Aphids seem to be dead, but I'll be checking.

    It caused the leaves of my D. capensis to curl as if they had caught prey, but they've returned to normal. No harmful effects to the plants thus far observed.

    I found it on Home Depot's website, and I also found it at my local Home Depot.

    Print out the label (see my post above), and bring it to Home Depot. They will help you locate it.

    What's the problem?? Good stuff!! The active ingredient is an A1 insect killer, and kills aphids, thrips, scale, mealybugs, and whitefly. I use it on all my CP without problems. I only wish it worked on cutworm.

    It twisted the pitchers very badly on my Sarracenia last year after I sprayed and is STILL twisting some of them this year when the new ones emerged. I erred on the less is better side of mixing.
