How much spray will the container make?
Rick B on Feb 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The applications vary too much to say for certain. Per the label, some plants/trees require as little as 1oz of concentrate per gallon or as much as 7.5oz of concentrate per gallon. Forgive the math, but this should help give you a range to work with: On average, the pint, which is 16oz of concentrate, could make from 2 to 16 gallons of spray, depending on intended use. The quart, which is 32oz of concentrate, could make from 4 to 32 gallons of spray, depending on intended use. I hope this helps!
Is this product not a dormant spray for apple fruit trees?
Terry L S on Mar 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Use it on my blueberry bushes, cherry tree, apricot tree, plum tree and my raspberry canes. I know it says in the instructions what dilution to use for Apple trees as well and I know it can be applied at various times during the year but right now is the best time to use it to fight overwintering pests.
will it control brown rot?

BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your inquiry. The dormant oil is used for the control of insects and pests, rather than diseases. Please call Customer Support at 800.325.4180 for a recommendation.
Will this dormant spray oil harm bees?
karen l on Mar 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Karen......I used this product and another one that Starks sells during the cold weather beforethe bees were active. Some of the fruit trees are in bloom, others coming, and vines will be too. I don't think I wuill have any adverse reaction to the spray....there's millions of honey bees and wild bees of all kinds polinating now. I would think that it is too late to spray the dormant oil now, with things coming in bloom. You might want to wait until the blooms have been polinate before fruit forms, if you haven't sprayed yet. That might be of some good for existing pests in the bark. By the way, I've always figured that a strong bee hive can overcome some mortality from my sprays and surrounding agriculture sprays, but I likely lose many times more bees to about 80-100 barn swallows that come back each summer and have 2-3 clutches of young each season. Hope this helps you in your spraying.
