Mineral Oil usage in Shockwave

What type of mineral oils are recommended in conjunction with shockwave and fogging. I understand that you company sells a citrus type is that acceptable also, or do you have to use just a plain oil. Lastly I understand by reading the mixture to shockwave is a part shockwave to 2.25 parts of mineral oils is that correct? How does the mineral oil not separate from the shockwave in a fogger being it is a water base product pesticide.

Answer:

We would recommend picking up some mineral oil from a local home improvement or paint store for use in Shockwave Fogging Insecticide. We would recommend sticking with what the label says and mixing with mineral oil. You could also use a light petroleum oil as well. You do not want to clog up your fogger with oils that are not listed on the label.

The mixing rates for Shockwave Fogging Insecticide will depend upon what you are treating for.
