When applying Malathion, what is the suggested mixture percentage per gallon of water for a fruit tree?


Malathion 57% is typically meant for treating large areas or crop land.  The label typically calls for 1 to 1.5 pints per 100 gallons of water for fruit trees which works out to be .15 to .20 ounces per gallon of water.  However, for safety and proper treatment you should find your particular fruit tree on the product label for accuracy and exact mixture ratios.
