I purchased this product from Lowes I have used it for years. The funny thing is I mixed it with water on a Tuesday got distracted and on the following Saturday went to use it and it had turn to a thick gel. I called BIOADVANCED 1 877 number spoke with rep that could not find a reason for this happening. MY question is " Is this product still safe to use on my plants?" Can any one help, I have used this brand for years with no problem.

Thanks Jay

If it turned into gel, I can't imagine how you would use it.

I generally don't like 3-in-1 products because they are designed to treat three different problems whether you have them or not. While the fungicide-portion of the product is useful as a preventive, I wouldn't want to use the insecticide or miticide portions of the product unless I actually had a problem with destructive insects or mites. Otherwise, the product introduces unnecessary poisons into the environment that ironically could harm pollinators, or beneficial insects such as lady bugs that eat aphids.

Could it have turned to gel because a few days went by? Do you normally use it right away? If you normally use right away and it's liquid, but this time you waited a few days and it was gel, i think it makes sense that the consistency just changed over time. If it's a product that has always worked well for you and given you good results, then I think it's fine to use.

Depending on the zone you're in, you may always have insects and fungus. In Louisiana, we pretty much do. This might not be the case in less humid zones.
After all, tomorrow is another day!
