HOW TO USE

: DEFENDER BUG-B-GON has been specifically formulated for use on indoor and

outdoor ornamental plants to kill aphids, caterpillars, mites, thrips, whitefly, mealy bug and many other

plant pests. It can be used as a protective treatment when applied at regular intervals [fortnightly] or as a

knockdown treatment to control existing pests. Shake well before use. Spray so that thorough coverage

of both upper and lower leaf surfaces is obtained. DO NOT apply if rainfall is expected before spray

deposits dry on leaf surfaces. AVOID application when windy or in hot sunny weather.
