PLANT PEST RATE HOW TO APPLY
Stone fruit Green peach aphid, black peach aphid 10 mL per 3 litres of water Spray foliage thoroughly when insects are first seen or if insects re-appear. Spray underneath the leaves to kill pests which may be hiding out of sight.
For hibiscus flower beetle, spray buds and flowers as needed. For longtailed mealybug, apply 3 sprays 2 weeks apart. For psyllids, spray at first sign and then a week later. For soft scales, spray in late spring or when small scales are first seen. Apply 3 sprays, 2 weeks apart.
For best results spray in the morning when there is little or no wind and little direct heat from the sun.
As a guide, 2 litres of spray mixture should be sufficient to thoroughly spray a fruit tree up to 3m high, or to spray 10 large tomato plants.
Capsicum, cucurbits, egg plant, potato, tomato Green peach aphid
Brassicas Grey cabbage aphid, turnip aphid
Cucumber, sweet, potato Silverleaf whitefly

Roses Aphids
Ornamentals Aphids, azalea lace bug, bronze orange bug, harlequin bug, citrus mealybug, greenhouse thrips, Fullers rose weevil, psyllids, soft scale
Hibiscus flower beetle, longtailed mealybug 20 mL per 3 litres of water
Lawns Curl grubs* and billbug larvae *also known as African black beetle larvae, Argentinian scarab larvae or pruinose scarab larvae.
Curl grubs and billbugs cause extensive damage to lawns by feeding on grass roots and stems. Affected grass turns yellow then brown and dies, and can be lifted up like a carpet.
50 mL per 15m2 Measure lawn area before application. Apply Confidor
using a watering can or a hand sprayer and water in
thoroughly. Do not mow treated lawn for three days.
For curl grubs, the optimum application time is peak
egg hatch which occurs between mid spring to mid
summer. For billbug larvae, the optimum application
time is at the peak of adult bug activity or when small
(4mm) larvae are found in the thatch or surface soil.
This occurs between late spring and early summer.
