DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Do not apply oil sprays on plants that are wilting or near wilting from lack of moisture. Do not apply with sulfur or lime sulfur. Do not apply within 3 weeks before or after an application of sulfur or lime sulfur. Avoid spraying during periods of excessive high temperature (above 90° F). Do not exceed three applications per year. Do not apply when temperatures fall below or are expected to fall below 42° within 3 weeks of application. In general, woody ornamentals are more tolerant than tender succulent plants. If applications are made to tender succulent plants, they may be syringed off with clear water about an hour after application. Application to plants in bloom may cause injury. Do not apply to wet foliage or when drying conditions are poor. Shake well before using. Mix thoroughly with proper amount of water in spray tank and continue agitation during spraying. Do not allow mixture to stand. For scalicides to be effective, thorough coverage is essential. Better scale control can be anticipated when applications are made when scale insects are in the crawler stage.

AVOCADO: For the control of Wax Scale, White Fly, and Latania Scale. Apply, preferably in May, June, or July. Use at a rate of 2 Tablespoonfuls per gallon of water. Do not apply within 7 days of harvest.

CAMELLIA, GARDENIA, LIGUSTRUM, and IXORA: For the control of Leaf Scale, White Fly, Citrus Mealy Bug, Soft Scales, Florida Red Scale, and Purple Scale. Use 2 Tablespoonfuls per gallon of water. Apply after blooming, and a second application 14 days later.

CITRUS  (Grapefruit,  Lemons,  Limes,  Oranges, Tangerines,   Tangelos, Kumquats): For the control of Florida Red Scale, Purple Scale, Spider Mite, White Fly. Apply preferably in June or July using 2 1/2 Tablespoonfuls per gallon of water. Do not apply when trees are in bloom. Do not apply within 7 days of harvest. NOTE:  Do not apply to Hibiscus, Papaya, Sensitive Ferns, such as Boston, Maiden Hair, and Peteris and certain species of Crassula.

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
Can this be used on crape myrtles that have white fly?

Tiny white fly around crape myrtle, spoltchy dark areas on one trunk of tree.

A
Southern AG Malathion - Oil Citrus & Ornamental Insect Spray does control whitefly but we are unsure if Southern AG Malathion - Oil Citrus & Ornamental Insect Spray can be safely used on Crape Myrtle's. The product label does state that it can be used on certain woody ornamentals but it doesn't list it specifically. You will want to contact Southern Ag for guidance on this one. Southern Ag can be reached at 941-722-3285.
