Having been practical 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: f

That SULPHUR SOLUTION INSECTICIDE is by far the cheapest and best preparation yet offered to the orange grower.:

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, .

But is always, uniform in strength and can be depended on to accomplish the purpose for which it was made. It can 'be .sprayed{Jon
the trees, atJany 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
is very effective in destroying Aleyrbdes l ; Citri (commonly known,as the White Fly), also the Red Spider (not the Spotted mite or Yellow
Spider), and used in combination;i 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. k
These insecticides have been used by some of the largest orange growers in the State and have given perfect satisfaction. : ""'; '
