Sevin Dust Search Terms

I have to laugh at a lot of the search terms that come through for Sevin Dust. These are search terms that people have used to access my site & learn about Sevin Dust.  Some of them are valid; others are just downright stupid. My thoughts follow in italicized print.

One of the most widely used chemicals in U.S. gardens.

One of the most widely used chemicals in U.S. gardens.

is it ok to put seven dust in the water that you water your plants with? (Inside or outside plants? Why would you want to use a poison around your yard or – God forbid – IN your home on houseplants!)

can i use sevin dust on my dog? (No, Sevin Dust is poison & you can’t use it on your pets!)

Using sevin dust on pot (Are you kidding me? You’re going to smoke pot with Sevin Dust ON it? Sevin dust WILL cause lung damage – “Black Lung disease” – but never mind – you are going to absorb the Sevin through your lungs and into your bloodstream! You’re either pretty stupid,  pretty stoned or BOTH!)

does using seven dust make garden non organic? (Duh…, Sevin Dust is not an organic product and it’s poison – of COURSE your garden won’t be organic!)

is sevin dust safe for vegetables? (NO!  You’re going to EAT these vegetables? Why put poison on them?)

will seven granules hurt the birds if eaten? (Yes, “seven” is toxic to birds.  They mistake the granules for birdseed.)

can a person die from sevin dust? (You might not drop dead from eating it right away but it has a cumulative effect on your body can manifest itself in a variety of ways: neurological damage, increased chances of developing Parkinson’s disease, lung damage from breathing dust and increased chances of developing cancer. If pregnant – you might predispose your unborn child to a myriad of birth defects.  We are talking some serious long-term effects here.) 

7 dust around my plants not on them (Uh, your plants will absorb the Sevin Dust from the soil and if these are vegetable plants, you’ll still be eating Sevin Dust!)

where can i buy sevin in us? (Certainly NOT in the grocery store, brilliance! Why do you want to buy it anyway?)

is 7 dust safe for kids?  (No, children absorb pesticides at a higher rate than adults do.  Their bodies are still developing – why would you want to subject your children to a substance like Sevin Dust, thus predisposing them to an array of complications.)

is it natural for worms to rise after putting seven dust and it rained? (The worms are rising to the surface because of the rain and yes, you are going to kill the worms in your garden – even the birds who eat these worms – if you use Sevin.)

is sevens powder harmful to humans? (Yes it is. Why use something that, in an accident in 1984, killed 3,000 immediately following an explosion in a plant that manufactured it.  Sevin Dust IS poison.)

can you use sevin on vegetables? (Again, Sevin Dust is a toxic compound. Why would you want to put it on your food?)

what to do if you get sevin dust on skin (It says RIGHT ON THE PACKAGE not to get it on your skin.  How safe can something be if it’s dangerous to come in contact with?)

has sevin dust caused cancer in animals? (Yes it has caused cancer and reproductive illnesses in lab animals.  Vets have reported increased incidences in cancer in pets whose owners use Sevin and other lawn and yard chemicals.)
