In all cases, follow the instructions on the pesticide label. The PNW Insect Management Handbook has no legal status, whereas the pesticide label is a legal document. Read the product label before making any pesticide applications.

Note: Products are listed in alphabetical order and not in order of preference or superiority of pest control.

We have tried to include OMRI-listed products for pests when available. Be aware also that there are other products not mentioned here that are available. Many of these are based on mineral or horticultural oils, as well as oils from sesame, garlic, clove, thyme, rosemary and other herbs/spices that list various pests controlled when used on mint. Some of these products are acceptable for use in the production of “organically grown” mint.
