Monterey Horticultural OilMonterey Horticultural Oil controls aphids, mites, scales, whiteflies, and other soft-bodied insects. Available at Al's in 32 oz. ready-to-spray bottle and 1 pint concentrate.

1) Fall

As soon as all the leaves have fallen off, use Monterey ®Ligui-Cop. Spraying your tree will help control bacterial blights, leaf curls, and other fungal diseases. Usually between November – December.

Once Liqui-Cop application is dry, use horticultural oil to control aphids and other soft-bodied insects.

2) Winter

When trees are dormant, use Monterey ® Liqui-Cop again. Proper application requires a second coating to ensure that all bacteria and fungus have been controlled. Usually in January.

3) Spring

Use Monterey ® Liqui-Cop when buds have started to swell, and then again 7 days after the 1st Spring application. This spray is usually in late February.

These basic applications should control the most common diseases and insects and have you enjoying better fruit yields.
