Dust Applications: Shake container to fluff powder. Cover both tops and undersides of leaves with thin uniform film of Garden Dust. Depending on foliage density, 10 oz. will cover approximately 625 sq. ft. For best results, begin applications when plants leaf out prior to when insects and diseases appear. Garden Dust works through direct contact with the target pests, so peak effectiveness will come when applications are made in early morning or evening when wind is calm. Repeat treatments every 7-10 days as needed.
Liquid Applications: Mix 1 pound to 5 gallons of water, or 1 Tbsp to 1 quart of water. Spray to cover all leaf surfaces of exposed plant. Repeat at 7 to 10 day intervals and after rains.
Application Note: Avoid use during high temperatures (>90° F) on plants that are susceptible to sulfur injury like melons, squash, cucumbers and pumpkins.
