Label / MSDS

Monterey Horticultural Oil has the lowest toxicity level of any pesticide on the market. It is considered an organic pesticide. Oils work primarily by smothering, or asphyxiating, the insects and mites. Unlike many standard pesticides, oils have the added advantage of killing eggs of many pests by smothering them. The only insects killed, though, are those that are in direct contact with the oil. Oils have very little residual action, however they can repel insects from moving in, feeding or laying eggs for up to two weeks. Fungicidal activity? Oil coatings on plants seem to interfere with the growth of some fungi. This is a short-lived protection however.

Common Rose Pests Controlled:
Aphids, Bristly Rose Slug, Rose Leafhoppers, Scale, Thrips, Whiteflies & Mites.
