Where can one find Sevin dust, an insecticide that can be used on most vegetables?

I cannot find a bag of dust that can be used to fill my hand-operated duster. All I can find is a small sprinkle container, which is not practical where a significant number
of plants need dusting.

    You can buy online from Amazon in 1 lb packs. Bonide Eight is a comparable dust that contains permethrin. Read and follow label directions.

    What has happened to the 5 pound bags of Sevin that have been commonly available? Another EPA restriction???

    I've only ever seen Sevin in liquid form.

    Ace Hardware has three-packs of the 1-pound size.
