SULPHUR SOLUTION


(INSECTICIDE)


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

remedy lot the various forms of fungi on trees. and plants. Being free 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. *

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 sprayed for

the l Rust Mite twice a month through the season. Where labor constitutes the principal item of expense in spraying tree

It is better and cheaper to use the Insecticide at full strength, viz.: One gallon of solution to 50 gallons of water, &i the

fumes: from the Insecticide kill the Rust Mite even if the solution should not happen to touch them. In using the

Insecticide at this strength it will save three or four sprayings through the season, thereby reducing the cost from one-

third to one-half. This is an Advantage Possessed by no 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.Price .

20c. Per Gallon, in barrels. if there is no agent in your vicinity, write for price delivered..
