SPRAY! SPRAY! SPRAY!




A good spmying outfit and a.reliable Insecticide are as essential to successful orange growing as the harrow and fertilizers.-.

Florida/ Farmer and fruit/ Grower.





USE THE EUREKA INSECTICIDE ,



It is the only Re1iab1e,


Suroly ottectivo and cheapest material offered for the destruction of insects. Its proper uso will kill the spider, rust mite, uloyrodes, anguil-
luln, moving scale and fungus growths. It is a sure remedy for the "foot-rot" and tho "blight" of tho orange and! tho wilt of tho pineapple.

It will not only prevent the oranges from rusting, but will greatly improve the classification of the fruit.'

SULPHUR SOLUTION


(INSECTICIDE)

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

remedy for 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

satisfaction. References furnished on application.
given perfect
For Rust Mite use one quart to fifty gallons of water. When used at this strength the trees should be sprayed trots for

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

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