pyrethrum is ok. comes from a marigold type flower grown in south africa ... altho I understand there is a synthetic around too because the flower is always in short supply ... but what can you do when experts rule the world? no matter how it was made pyrethrum is the best choice. was worried you would powder the place with ddt or something! good luck!
Thats intresting to know but I have one question, when the seedlings are sprayed with insecticide or snail pellets are put down does it take some time for the poison to kick and there for allowing the insects feast on your plants then they die or does the pesticide sprayed on the plants taste like crap for them and there for leaving the seedling in peace and harmony?

I 'm amazed re this thread. I mean the amount of difficulties people can have with their seedlings. here I don't plant them, I just chuck the seed out in the garden ... rain or no rain ... and on the next rain they come up, and nothing but grasshoppers, which aren't often around, eat them! (ok, so I often have plenty of seed.)
so I 'm thinking yr growing environment is not healthy somehow ... ? too much man made rubbish around ... rotting stuff? has the area been regularly sprayed with roundup? very bad. heavily fertlised with lawn fertilizer? almost as bad.
can you get hold of some hay and thickly mulch the area for a metre or so around? I 'm thinking you need to shield yr little project from whatever's the matter with that ground.
