Yes. I'm going to have to spray for them soon. Rain forecast for next several days so I'm not sure how effective it will be. I'm going to have to check the label again. Sevin I believe has a 24 hour clearance so we pick in the morning, spray and then pick the next day late afternoon. All asparagus that has been sprayed is washed before sale. I don't like to spray and have it washed off by rain before it can work, there are limits as to how many times a year it can be done. Them little b******s make a mess of it don't they! Vern
