The Q&A Archives: Boston Ivy sprayed with Sevin

Question: We had a very nice start to Boston Ivy growing on the front of our house. It was in it's second year. Japaneese beetles started eating it so we sprayed it with Sevin. A week later all the leaves felloff. Is it dead or will it come back.

Answer: Without seeing the plant it is a bit difficult to say however this is a tough plant so it might well come back. Allow several weeks at least for new growth. This is assuming the leaf drop was caused by the spray. Keep the plant well watered and be very patient. Good luck.
