Using White Oil on Avocado Fruit/Leaves

Anonymous added on April 12, 2016 | Answered

I would like to know if I can apply a horticultural oil on both the fruit and leaves of my small avocado orchard. There is evidence of fruit spotting bugs on the fruit. At least this is what it looks like. My name is Rose and am looking at organic alternatives to chemical sprays.

I did some research on fruit spotting bugs and the recommended means of organic control for them. The recommendation by some is to spray with pyrethrum and neem oil every 7 days, however, the frequency is really dictated by your insect activity. Mix two tablespoons or pyrethrum and two tablespoons of neem oil to 4.5 litres of water.
