I never heard of "Dormant Oil" before reading through my new "Wildlife Group" catalog the other day. They recommend spraying all fruit trees with it in February on a warm day. Sounds like a good idea to control insects. Anybody here tried it?

I just have 19 fruit trees. Not sure how much I'd need for that. Is the oil somthing you dilute with water or use "straight"?

Good stuff if you have mites or scale overwintering on your trees. Not alot of residual activity.
