Garden Pest and Plant Disease Listing - SA
SABADILLA: A broad-spectrum, short residual (2 days in sunlight) botanical insecticide derived from a South American lily. It can be very toxic to humans in purified form.
SAWFLY: A wasp-like insect whose worm-like larvae feed on the fruit and foliage of many trees and shrubs. The fruit is tunneled and the leaves skeletonized. The foliage of some plants may all fall off. Control these pests with insecticidal soap, horticultural oil, or traditional insecticides, or by tilling soil to kill overwintering larvae.
