Dormant Oil Tree Applications
Horticultural dormant oil sprays are specific, highly-refined petroleum products that are mixed with water and applied to trees and shrubs to control aphids, spider mites, and scale. When dormant oils are applied, they destroy pests and their eggs by suffocating them. When applied properly, the thin film of oil plugs the spiracles or pores through which the mite or insect breathes. Proper timing is critical when using dormant oil sprays. In Illinois, horticultural dormant oils should be applied in late March or early April before the plants show signs of breaking dormancy, also known as "bud break". Dormant oil sprays should be applied as close to bud break as possible.
