It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. Do not apply this product in a way that will contact workers or other persons, either directly or through drift. Only protected handlers may be in the area during application. Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system (i.e., via chemigation).

Use this product only in accordance with its labeling and with the Worker Protection Standard, 40 CFR part 170. This Standard contains requirements for the protection of agricultural workers on farms, forests, nurseries, and greenhouses, and handlers of agricultural pesticides. It contains requirements for training, decontaminating, notification, and emergency assistance. It also contains specific instructions and exceptions pertaining to the statements on this label about person protective equipment (PPE) and restricted-entry interval. The requirements in this box only apply to uses of this product that are covered by the Worker Protection Standard. Do not enter or allow worker entry into treated areas during the restricted entry interval of 12 hours.
PPE required for early entry to treated areas that is permitted under the Worker Protection Standard and that involves contact with anything that has been treated, such as soil or water, is:
x coveralls,
x shoes plus socks, and
x chemical-resistant gloves made of any waterproof material.

The requirements in this box apply to uses of this product that are NOT within the scope of the Worker Protection Standard for agricultural pesticides (40 CFR Part 170). The WPS applies when this product is used to produce agricultural plants on farms, forests, nurseries, or green houses. Do not enter or allow others to enter until sprays have dried.

A variety of factors including weather conditions (e.g., wind direction, wind speed, temperature, and relative humidity) and method of application (ground, aerial, or airblast) can influence pesticide drift. The applicator and grower must evaluate all factors and make appropriate adjustments when applying this product. The restrictions pertaining to wind speed, temperature inversions, and droplet size apply to all of the methods of application permitted for this product.
Wind Speed: Do not apply at wind speeds greater than 15 mph at the application site.
Temperature Inversions: If applying at wind speeds less than 3 mph, the applicator must determine if a) conditions of temperature inversion exist, or b) stable atmospheric conditions exist at or below nozzle height. Do not make applications into areas of temperature inversions or stable atmospheric conditions.
Droplet Size: Apply as a medium or coarser spray (ASABE standard 572), and the minimum volume mean diameter (VMD) for spinning atomizer nozzles.

Ground Spray Applications: Apply using a nozzle height of no more than 4 feet above the ground or crop canopy.
Airblast Applications: Turn off outward pointing nozzles at row ends and when spraying outer row. To minimize spray loss over the top in citrus applications, spray must be directed into the canopy.
Aerial Applications: Do not release spray at a height greater than 10 feet above the ground, top of crop, or above the orchard canopy.
Boom Length: The boom length must not exceed 75% of the wingspan or 90% of the rotor blade’s diameter.
Swath Adjustment: When applications are made cross-wind, the swath will be displaced downwind. The applicator must compensate for this displacement at the downwind edge of the application area by adjusting the path of the aircraft upwind. Leave at least one swath unsprayed at the downwind edge of the treated field.
NOTE: DO NOT APPLY HORTICULTURAL SPRAY OIL WITH SULFUR SPRAYS OR WHERE SULFUR IS ON THE FOLIAGE. TO DO SO MAY CAUSE FOLIAGE INJURY, LEAF DROP. DO NOT APPLY HORTICULTURAL SPRAY OIL AT ABNORMAL TEMPERATURES (ABOVE 90ºF) OR WHEN PLANTS ARE DRY (SUFFERING FOR WANT OF MOISTURE) AS IT MAY CAUSE LEAF DROP DUE TO “SHOCK.” HORTICULTURAL SPRAY OIL is a self-emulsifying spray oil, composed of paraffinic oil with emulsifier and spreader sticker, which envelop, wet and smother over wintering eggs of European red spider mites, Adelgids, scale insects, apple aphids, bud moth, leaf roller [redbanded, obliquebanded, fruittree], light brown apple moth, red bug, codling moth larvae, psylla (adults), blister mites, galls, whitefly larvae and mealybugs on fruit trees, shade trees, vegetables, ornamentals, shrubs and roses. HORTICULTURAL SPRAY OIL may be used at the DORMANT STAGE (before buds showgreen tissue), GREEN TIP STAGE (when leaves of blossom buds are bursting and show about
1/8 to ¼ inch of green color), DELAYED DORMANT STAGE (when the leaves of the blossom buds are out from ¼ to ½ inch), and during the GROWING SEASON. SHAKE WELL. Then add HORTICULTURAL SPRAY OIL to desired amount of water and mix thoroughly. Use a good pressure spray and apply enough liquid per tree to wet entire surface of branches, main limbs and trunk. Give special attention to underside of limbs. Make application when the temperature is above 40ºF.
