Where can you purchase Platinum or Admire for cucumber wilt? What is safer to use and are they organic? How about Sevin, which is more readily available? Thank You.

They should be available through your local lawn and garden center or nurseries. You can also do an online search in your area for retailers. That said, Sevin is also an acceptable treatment for cucumber wilt (caused by the striped cucumber beetle), and yes, it's more readily available.
