Description

Eco-Oil Organic Miticide & Insecticide Botanical Oil Concentrate

Active Ingredient: Emulsifiable Botanical Oil @ 850g/L

Eco-Oil Organic Miticide & Insecticide Botanical Oil Concentrate (HIPPO enhanced) controls a broad range of insects, including scale, mites, aphids, whitefly and leafminer in certain vegetables, olive trees, citrus trees, flowers, crops and ornamental plants, as well as improving the wetting and sticking of sprays.

Hippo Enhanced attracts beneficial insects into your crop.

Eco-Oil Organic Miticide & Insecticide Botanical Oil Concentrate is Australia’s first botanical oil-based organic miticide & insecticide made from 100% Australian-grown oils.

Eco-Oil Organic Miticide & Insecticide Botanical Oil Concentrate controls a broad range of insects, including scale, mites, aphids, whitefly and leafminer.  Because eco-oil uses light botanical oils that boil off plant surfaces fast, there is less risk of burning foliage with eco-oil than with white oil and other mineral/petroleum oil sprays. This also allows eco-oil to carry no withholding period for edible crops.

Eco-Oil Organic Miticide & Insecticide Botanical Oil Concentrate is safe for use on veggies, as well as ornamentals, with no withholding period. Spray and eat on the same day! Also safe for beneficial insects like bees, ladybeetles and earthworms.

Why Choose Eco-Oil Organic Miticide & Insecticide

  • It contains the active ingredient of Emulsifiable Botanical Oil. (100% plant oils – contains no petroleum derivatives like the other oil sprays).
  • Due to the Eco-oil physical mode of action, there is no potential for spray resistance from overuse.  Eco-Oil helps growers control resistance-sensitive pests like mites, aphids and whitefly year after year.
  • Eco-oil will attract beneficial insects into treated crops which enhances biological control.
  • Eco-oil is botanical-oil based and therefore has a lower potential to burn plants than mineral oils.
  • Eco-oil carries no withholding periods or re-entry restrictions.
  • Eco-oil can be used within IPM (Integrated Pest Management) systems in a preventative manner.
  • Eco-oil is Registered organic with Australian Organic Cert no. Australian Input AI222.
  • Eco-oil kills a broad range of common pest insects but remains safe for beneficial insects like bees, ladybirds and lacewings.
  • Eco-oil is Effective at low rates.
  • Eco-oil has a reduced risk of foliage burn.
  • Eco-oil is perfect for organic pest control in the veggie patch.
  • Eco-oil is made in Australia using locally grown plant oils & GM Free

Where can Eco-oil be used

  • Home Garden Use – General
  • Olives
  • Ornamental Plants
  • Capsicum Or Pepper
  • Cucumber
  • Strawberry
  • Tomato
  • Vegetables
  • Citrus
  • Commercial Crops
  • Floriculture Crops

Eco-oil will attract beneficial insects into crops and is also safe to use within already established populations of beneficials, making it an ideal IPM tool. A residual toxicity study with eco-oil demonstrated that it had very little effect on the survival rates of adult Whitefly parasitoids (Encarsia formosa).

Trials on other species of beneficial commercial insects like predatory mites (Phytoseiulus persimilus, Amblyseius vitoriensis, Neoseiulus cucumeris) and predatory bugs (like Orius armatus) have also demonstrated excellent compatibility of Eco-oil with these commercial species.  Since there is little effect on beneficial insects, Eco-oil makes an attractive alternative in IPM systems where the variety of miticides/insecticides that can be used is very limited.

    I love the simplicity of eco oil for many things for insecticide, miticide, and additives for fertilisers and even herbicides to help with sticking on the leaves.

     Eco-Oil Organic Miticide & Insecticide is a product that does not stay in a solution easily when mixed with water.  It is recommended to agitate the spray during application frequently.  The best practice is to mix the Eco-Oil with clean water and use immediately.  If stored for some time (i.e. overnight or longer), it is very likely the mix will separate and fall out of the solution.  Further agitation is then required to remix the spray, hence the advice to mix and apply promptly.

    Eco-Oil Organic Miticide and Insecticide claims to control a wide variety of insects, including leaf miners & would be safe to use on Lilly Pilly.  Another organic option you might like to consider are the products made from Azadirachtin (Eco-Neem Botanical Organic Insecticide & AzaMax Organic Insecticide) for the control of a broad range of chewing and sucking insects

     Eco-Oil Organic Miticide & Insecticide only has claims to control Black Citrus Scale in Olives.  However, it would still be worthwhile using on other scale pests.  White Oil Insecticide is registered to control more scale insects in more species and is another good option to consider.

  • Do not exceed recommended dose rates.

HOW TO MIX:

  • Half fill the spray container with clean water.
  • Add the required amount of Eco-Oil, shake, then top up the container with water and shake again.
