Works well for its intended purpose - and ORGANIC!, July 31, 2014
The active ingredients in this product are Sulfur (10.0%) and Pyrethrins (.25%). For general use it is diluted on a 1 to 25.6 basis with water (5 ounces concentrate to 1 gallon water).

Sulfur is a mineral-based pesticide and anti-fungal treatment. It can be used as a dust, wettable powder, paste or liquid. Its primary use is to control powdery mildews, certain rusts, leaf blights and fruit rots. Spider mites, psyllids and thrips also are susceptible to sulfur. Most pesticidal sulfur is labeled for vegetables such as beans, potatoes, tomatoes, peas and fruit crops such as grapes, apples, pears, cherries, peaches, plums and prunes.

Sulfur has the potential to cause plant injury in dry 90 degree-plus weather. It's also incompatible with other pesticides. Don't use sulfur on plants within 20-30 days of applying spray oils. Sulfur reacts with the oil to create phytotoxicity. Sulfur is non-toxic to mammals, but it may irritate eyes and skin. It has been given a CAUTION rating.

Pyrethrum is the most widely used botanical insecticide in the United States. The active ingredient, pyrethrin, is extracted from a chrysanthemum plant, grown primarily in Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Ecuador.

Most insects are highly susceptible to pyrethrin at very low concentrations. The compound acts rapidly on insects, causing immediate knock down. Flying insects drop almost immediately after exposure. Fast knock down and insect death don't, however, always go hand in hand; many insects recover after the initial knockdown phase. Insect mortality is increased by mixing pyrethrins with a synergist, such as piperonyl butoxide (PBO) to create pyrethrum. PBO, however, is not certified to be used on organic crops.

Pyrethrins are highly irritating to insects; as a result, they may be used as "flushing agents," causing insects to come out of hiding, a desirable circumstance when you need to identify an insect that is hiding in the turf grass such as grubs or sod web worm.

Pyrethrum is non-toxic to most mammals, making it among the safest insecticides in use. The Environmental Protection Agency has approved it for more uses than any other insecticide. It's sold under trade names that include Pyrenon, Red Arrow (pyrethrins/rotenone) and Pyrellin (Pyrethrins/rotenone). Pyrethrum has been assigned a CAUTION rating.

Both of these active ingredients occur naturally in the environment, and have been approved for ORGANIC gardening.

Organic allowed and good, June 24, 2014
This is good on veggies and has sulphur for mildew. But even rated organic, it's still a pesticide. Use it right as dark when the bees have gone to bed. It's such a short term poison it's mostly gone in 12 hours while the bees are sleeping. Still follow the label. Organic doesn't mean you can drink it!

DID NOT WORK!, June 5, 2014

Great for fruit trees and roses, July 17, 2013
I've been using this for a few months now and can tell you it works great for peach leaf curl, beetles, aphids, etc. GREAT all in one spray AND it's non toxic to the environment. I've sprayed peach, fig, pluot, apple, pear, apricot and the Wifeys roses with fast results and zero problems.

Bonide fruit and nut fungicide is very effective for anyone looking for a reasonably priced fungicide that is good. The product works well and does not bother the environment from what I have seen. Definitely an item to purchase.
