Yates Scale Gun - Ready to use
Controls aphids, scale, thrips, caterpillars, ants, mealybug, whitefly and leafhoppers on indoor and outdoor plants, citrus, roses and ornamentals.
Effective combination of low toxic pyrethrum and petroleum oil.
Pyrethrum provides fast knockdown of insects and oil controls hard to kill pests such as scale and mites.
Easy-to-use trigger pack - no mixing required, no mess.
How It Works
White oil (Petroleum oil) blocks the breathing pores of insects causing suffocation and rapid death. Thorough coverage of pests is therefore essential.
Pyrethrins are fast-acting knockdown insecticides with contact and stomach poison and fumigant action.
Piperonyl Butoxide prevents the insect detoxifying pyrethrin and accelerates the rate of knockdown.
Pyrethrum, piperonyl butoxide & petroleum oil
