Having been ,practical i orange growers for a number of years, also in the business of manufacturing Insecticides,and using,them.,our
selves for the last ten years, we speak from experience when we make the following statement : 'w .
That SULPHUR ,SOLUTION INSECTICIDE is by far the cheapest and best preparation yet offered to the orange grower., f ,

It" has never yet. been. Adulterated or Diluted in any form whatever in order to Lower the Price. ,'.as. ;
other .Insecticides have been ,throughout the State, .: : V:

But is always uniform in strength and can be depended, onto accomplish purpose for:which it was made.<: It can be. sprayed jbn:':

the. trees, at any stage ,of growth; ; without injury to them or the persons usingHt. f Vf ? .. :/. : "; '- 71
As sulphur will not kill all insects. affecting the orange tree"we have perfected another insecticide, known as Tar Emulsion which,
is very effective in destroying Aleyrodes Citri (commonly known as the White Fly), also the Red Spider (not the Spotted mite or Yellow
Spider), and, used in combination with Sulphur Solution it will give better results than any insecticide ever. used. .
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.
