WALNUTS - FOLIAR

General Information

MITE-E-OIL is a special blend of refined phytobland oils that function as a contact insecticide and miticide. In addition, the surfactant/emulsifier system utilized in MITE-E-OIL improves spray application by modifying the wetting and deposition characteristics of the spray droplets.

For foliage application, the spray tank must be free of any sulfur residue before using MITE-E-OIL. Do not combine sulfur sprays with MITE-E-OIL on foliage and do not follow a previous application of sulfur or apply sulfur following MITE-E-OIL until sufficient time has elapsed for safety (at least 30 days). If in doubt, spray a portion of one tree previously treated with sulfur, using 1 quart to 25 gallons water. If sufficient time has not elapsed, burn will show in several days. When temperatures drop below 32o F (usually nighttime lows), do not spray tree and vine crops until daytime temperatures have warmed to a point above 35o F and are free from moisture due to melting frost or heavy dews. MITE-E-OIL can be used with recommended rates of other pesticides. Application to trees weakened by disease, drought, driving winds or high nitrogen applications may result in oil injury.
