  • Avoid spraying in direct sunlight or when plants are under stress e.g. from drought, frost, heat or over watering
  • Before treating exotic plants or large areas of the same plant species, undertake a test for damage on one plant and observe for effects over a 10-day period


  1. Shake well before use
  2. Rotate the spray adjuster to ‘spray’ position
  3. Aim carefully at the plant to be treated and pump the trigger
  4. Spray both upper and lower surfaces of plant leaves lightly until fully wetted but avoid run-off
  5. Rotate spray adjuster to ‘x’ position after use and before storage.

For the following pests use these spray volumes:

  • Whitefly 300ml – 666ml per 10 sq.m;
  • Carrot Fly 1000ml per 10 sq.m.

Not recommended for control of whitefly on cucumbers and courgettes. Pesticide resistance in glasshouse whitefly and some aphids is widespread. Where resistant pests are present this product is unlikely to give control. May cause tingling/numbness (paraesthesia) if exposed areas are contacted. The effect is transient and may last up to 24 hours.
