Pyrethrin is an extract from the pyrethrum daisy and disrupts the nervous system of both sucking and chewing insect pests such as aphids and caterpillars.Vegetable oil (canola oil) acts as an insecticide by smothering insects such as scale and mealy bug and deterring the citrus leaf miner moth from laying eggs on citrus leaves.Also controls Bronze Orange Bugs on citrus, which damage tender young leaves and stems and also suck sap from flower and fruit stalks, causing them to drop.
