DORMANT OIL APPLICATION (HORTICULTURAL OIL)
Dormant Oil can be applied to help control difficult types of insects in their overwintering (or hibernation) stage, before any damage occurs. The oil would be sprayed on the bark of affected tree or shrub, where hibernating, non-active insects, eggs and fungi or diseases may be growing.
