Winter Spray Oil

Product Description

Tru-Blu Winter Spray Oil is designed to be used on deciduous trees in their dormant state, in the control of scale insects and mites.

It is highly refined, heavy mineral spray oil, which mixes readily with water. Being heavier than Tru-Blu Summer Spray Oil, Winter Spray Oil remains on the plant longer in winter conditions and so is more effective against wintering pests.

Tru-Blu Winter Spray Oil can be used as a spreading agent for selected fungicides and pesticides.
