TO THE ORANGE GROWERS OF FLORIDA.'.



,
Having'been practical .orange growers for a number of years, also:fin 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: -'
,
That SULPHUR SOLUTION: INSECTICIDE is by far the cheapest and best preparation yet offered to the orange grower:

It lias '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' '

the trees,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'
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. :; V:.

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. .,. .
