Can I spray Essentria IC3 on avocado trees to eradicate mites? We want to sell the fruit.
Essentria IC3 cannot be applied to fruit or vegetables directly, especially ones that will be harvested for human consumption. However, we do have a product made specifically for food bearing trees which is called Malathion 57%. It can be applied right to the food on the tree, For each plant type there is a cut off time before harvesting, which is usually 7 days. Here is a link to the product label.
