Mix thoroughly the proper amount of oil and water in the spray tank and continue agitation during spraying. Do not allow the mixture to stand. In general, woody ornamentals are more tolerant to oil sprays than tender succulent plants. If oil applications must be made to tender plants, they may be syringed off with clear water about an hour after applying oil.
Do not apply oil sprays to plants that are wilting or are near wilting from lack of moisture. Do not apply oil with sulfur or lime sulfur. Do not apply an oil spray within 3 weeks before or after an application of sulfur or lime sulfur. Avoid spraying during periods of excessively high temperature (above 90 degrees Fahrenheit). Do not exceed three oil spraying per year. Do not use more than the suggested dosage, for to do so may cause plant injury.

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.

This includes all Florida uses as well as uses on actively growing plants (non-dormant) in other Southeastern areas. Do not use when temperatures fall below 42 degrees Fahrenheit within 3 weeks of application. If second application of oil is necessary, do not apply within six weeks after first oil spray. Avoid spraying open blooms.
