White oil emulsion insecticide for the control of pernicious scale, red scale, soft brown scale, circular purple and mussel scale, aphids, red spider mite, mealy bug, woolly aphid, Australian bug and bryobia mite eggs on deciduous fruit trees, citrus, ornamentals and shrubs as listed.

This product blocks the breathing pores of insects causing suffocation and rapid death of eggs, larvae and nymphs of insects and mites and adults of soft-bodied insects. Thorough coverage of pests is therefore essential. Dead scale may remain on the plants for a few weeks after spraying.

OLEUM is a contact spray and must cover the insects or their eggs to kill them. Therefore spray very thoroughly to cover all parts of the branches, twigs or leaves. Best result will be obtained by using as high a spray pressure as possible.
