forthe:: various forms of fungi on trees and plants. Being free from all substances of a caustic, corrosive or poisonous nature, .it can

This insecticide. has been used by some of the largest orange growers in the state during the past two years, and has given a

perfect'satisfaction. References furnished on ajJ lication. ,

FOR RUST MITE,. USE ONE QUART TO 1 FIFTY GALLONS OF 'VATER. When used at this strength the trees should be sprayed .

f" for the Rust Mite twice a month, through the season. Where labor constitutes the principal item of expense in spraying trees it better I.

.and cheaper to use the Insecticide at full strength, viz.: One\ allon of solution to 50 gallons of water, as the fumes from the Insecticide .

will Kill the Rust! Mite even if the solution should not happen to touch them. in using the Insecticide at this strength it will save __\

4 three or four sprayings through the season, thereby reducing the cost from one-third to oe-half. This is an Advantage Possessed by

BO Other Preparation of Sulphur. if used in this manner it will also kill the other insects that may be moving on the trees. :.

FOR RED SPIDER and SCALE, use one gallon to fifty gallons of water. General directions for using sent on application .. :
