|PLANT||PEST||RATE||HOW TO APPLY|

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.
