Monterey Horticultural Oil (Gal)

Monterey Horticultural Oil (Gal)

For Year Round Usage - Dormant or Growing Season

This is the same product as Monterey Lawn and Garden's SAF-T-SIDE horticultural oil, which is no longer available.

Use on most crops, including fruit and nut trees, vegetables, berries, ornamentals, grasses for control of fungal diseases, insects and mites. Mode of action is through suffocation of eggs, larvae, nymphs and adults of soft bodied insects. Its mode of action requires total spray coverage. As a fungicide, it interferes with the attachment of the pathogen to the host and acts as to suffocate the organism.

  • Contains 80% mineral oil (92% unsulfonated residue of mineral oil)
  • Controls powdery mildew, rust, botrytis, mites, aphids, scale, leafminers, fungus gnats and most soft bodied insects.

Horticultural oils have been used for centuries to combat a variety of garden pests and diseases. They are prized for their effectiveness and safety when used correctly. Monterey Horticultural Oil is a type of dormant oil, designed for use during the dormant season, when plants have shed their leaves and are less susceptible to damage.

Key Features of Monterey Horticultural Oil:

  1. Natural Ingredients: Monterey Horticultural Oil is formulated with 98% highly refined mineral oil, making it an environmentally friendly choice. It contains no harmful chemicals, making it safe for people, pets, and beneficial insects when used as directed.

  2. Versatile Pest Control: This horticultural oil effectively controls a wide range of garden pests, including aphids, scale insects, mites, whiteflies, and more. It works by smothering and suffocating these pests upon contact.

  3. Fungal Disease Management: In addition to pest control, Monterey Horticultural Oil can help manage fungal diseases such as powdery mildew, rust, and black spot. It forms a protective barrier on plant surfaces, preventing fungal spores from germinating.

  4. Dormant Season Application: As a dormant oil, this product is applied during the winter months when plants are dormant. It is ideal for fruit trees, ornamental shrubs, and other deciduous plants. Applying horticultural oil during this period helps reduce overwintering pests and diseases.

  5. Easy-to-Use: Monterey Horticultural Oil is simple to apply. Just mix the recommended amount with water, following the instructions on the label, and spray it onto the plants. Ensure thorough coverage, especially on the undersides of leaves, where many pests hide.

How to Use Monterey Horticultural Oil:

  1. Timing: Apply horticultural oil during the dormant season, typically in late winter or early spring before buds swell or break dormancy. Avoid applying it during freezing temperatures.

  2. Dilution: Mix the recommended amount of Monterey Horticultural Oil with water. The precise dilution ratio may vary depending on the target pests and plants, so consult the product label for specific instructions.

  3. Application: Use a garden sprayer to apply the oil evenly to all parts of the plant, ensuring thorough coverage. Pay close attention to the undersides of leaves and any crevices where pests may hide.

  4. Frequency: For effective pest and disease management, repeat applications may be necessary. Follow the label recommendations for the specific plant and pest you are addressing.
