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

It is the only Re1iab1e,

Surely effective and cheapest material offered for the destruction of insects. Its propeAise: will kill the spider, rust mite, aleyrodes, anguil-
lula, moving scale and fungus growths. It is a sure remedy for the "foot-rot" and the]"blight" of the orange and! the wilt of the pineapple.
It will not only prevent the oranges from rusting, but will greatly improve the classification of the fruit.

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

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 far

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

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

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 ...-

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. .
