Lime, Sulphur


Among the insecticides, lime- sulphur is one of growing importance. Already it has found extensive use as a spray on all kinds of fruit trees, shrubs and vines and is also largely employed as an animal dip for scab diseases, and for the extermination of lice in hen houses. It is especially adapted for the destruction of soft-bodied scale insects on fruit trees, such as the San Jose Scale.
