f SPRAY ORANGE AND LEMON' TREES? ;.

'
Yes; if you use the right material No; emphatically, no, if solutions made with Potash, Caustic Soda"Salt,

Whale Oil Soaps and kindred caustic substances are used. These solutions, by hardening the bark, do more harm

0*the trees than would be done by the insects sought to be destroyed.

THE EUREKA INSECTICIDE ;
..'
is entirely free from such substances. Trees sprayed with it are noticeable for the bright, yellowish color of the barr, which always indicates a vigorous, ,
.
"
; ,healthy condition. .* "
.. ; It is sure death to the.Red Spider, Rust Mite, Scale Insects, and the various forms'of Fungi. It is now believed tp be a specific for the "Foot-Rot".
and possible remedy for"'the,Blight. Has been used by more than 500 orange growers the present season with satisfaction. '

SULPHUR SOLUTION 'o,..


...': ', : (INSECTICIDE), '

: ': Is the most effective compound yet discovered for destroying the insects infesting the orange tree, and is, a sovereign remedy

for the'various forms of 'fungi on trees and plants. B.eiilfree{ from all substances of a caustic, corrosive or poisonous nature, it can

.be handled with perfect safety to the person, and applied to the trees at any stage of growth without injury. J .

This insecticide has been used by some of the largest orange growers in the State during the past two years;and has given

perfect satisfaction. References furnished on application. }

.'- FOR RUST MITE USE ONE QUART TO FIFTY GALLONS OF WATER. When used,at this strength the trees should be i

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

... old cheaper to use-.the Insecticide at full strength, viz.: One {gallon of solution too {gallons of water, as the fumes from the Insecti-

# "cide 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

tree or four sprayings 'through the season, thereby reducing the cost from one-third to one-half. This is an Advantage ,Possessed b>

-, .. M 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.
