SunSpray Oils

High performance, low toxicity insecticides and acaricides

SunSpray Oils are paraffinic oils specifically refined to meet the requirements of university researchers for an effective insecticide/acaricide with low toxicity. Available in formulations for a wide variety of seasonal and crop requirements, SunSpray Oils meet stringent specifications for two key properties: unsulfonated residue (UR) and distillation. The benefit: oils meeting the high performance requirements for effective insect, mite and disease control. Unlike conventional synthetic organic pesticides that act as poisons, SunSpray Oils “smother” insects and their eggs. Insects may develop resistance to poisons, but none develop resistance to smothering. SunSpray Oils have also been reported to adversely affect cell membrane function, deter feeding, repel insects, interfere with ovipositing and inhibit the spread of plant disease.

SunSpray 6N and SunSpray 6E

A dormant spray oil evaporating quickly and uniformly to provide efficient protection, coupled with a reduced chance of phytotoxicity. Ideal for deciduous fruit production, or as a Spring/Fall citrus spray.

SunSpray 8N

Designed to combat Yellow Sigatoka, a banana and plantain disease.

SunSpray 11N

Designed to be more effective during deep dormancy, because it remains on the plant longer.
