Liquid Spray For Red Spider

Categories: Pests and Diseases of Plants

Is there any liquid spray I can use in my spraying that will kill the

red spider without injuring the foliage of the almond?

A liquid spray for red spider is made by taking sulphur 30 pounds; lime

(reduced to milk form by water), 15 pounds; water, 200 gallons; or use

commercial lime-sulphur, 4 or 5 gallons to 200 gallons of water. These

sprays can be applied without injuring the foliage. They are more

expensive in labor cost than dry sulphuring, but are more effective.
