Having teen practical orange growers for a number:of years, also in the business manufacturing Insecticides and using them ourselves .1

for the last ten years, we speak from experience when we make the following statement : .

That SULPHUR SOLUTION INSECTICIDE, is by far the cheapest and best preparation yet offered to the orange grower. >- i

: It has i never yet been Adulterated or Diluted In any form whatever in order. Lower the Price, as. 'i

, t tJ .
; ; '
J*J other :Insecticides hare 'been throughout the State, 4

. ,
'. B.ut'*is always uniform in strength and can be depended on 'to accomplish the purpose for which it was made. It can be sprayedlon. |

thejtrees, at any stage of growth, without injury to them or the persons using,it.

: As sulphur'will not kill all ,insects affecting the orange tree, we'have perfected another insecticide known as Tar Emulsion, which .
/1.. Is very effective in destroying Aleyrodes Citri (commonly known as the White Fly), also the Red Spider (not the Spotted mite or Yellow 1

: Spider); and used in combination with,Sulphur:Solution it will,give better results than any insecticide ever used. p. J

We have tested it thoroughly the past two years'ourselves) and know whereof we,speak. .

, ; These insecticides have been used by some of the largest orange growers'in..the State and have given perfect satisfaction. i
