How to Use & When to Apply:
Shake the bottle well before application. Bonide Eight can be used on fruits and vegetables until the day of harvest. Wash harvested foods thoroughly. When used outdoors, it’s best to apply in the morning or evening when the temperature is cooler so the product won’t evaporate as quickly. Avoid use when temperature is expected to exceed 90 degrees F. Remove toys and pet food dishes, and cover aquariums before spraying. Keep children and pets out of the sprayed area until after spray has dried.
To control fungal diseases:
Treat plants as soon as fungal infection symptoms are noticed. Thoroughly spray all parts of the plant, especially new shoots. Do not use so much spray that it runs off or drips. To prevent fungal disease, this product can be applied as a protective spray for susceptible plants early in the season before infection is noticed.
Bonide Eight can be used to control blackspot, powdery mildew, rust, scab, blight, brown rot, and leaf spot. Reapply every 7 to 10 days or after rain, as needed.
To control insects or mites:
This product works through direct contact, so spray visible insects and thoroughly spray leaves, stems, and new growth, including undersides of leaves. Do not use so much spray that it runs off or drips. Spray plants as soon as insect pests are noticed. The spray may be reapplied every 7 to 10 days or after rain, as needed.
