Got a few bottles on sale at Home Depot, like 80% off.  Called Bonide tech help for some answers to questions.  Will share.......

1.  For starts the product is an ultra refined paraffinic oil that does not require any surfactants or a spreader-sticker.  2-3% of the product contains emulsifiers which also acts as a sticker.

2.  Found a small bit of mealy bug and scale on a Sweet Tart mango that is putting off a lot of large, tender red leaves, so, the question was "will this young tender foliage be subject to phyto toxicity if applied below the recommended application temps of 90F?  Rep said they have never had a problem with leaf burn on young tender foliage.  I'll hit some trees this morn and see.

Here's the product - http://www.bonide.com/products/insect-and-disease-control/view/210/all-seasons-horticultural-spray-oil

Murphy's law - temps soared to 95F yesterday after an application of 1.5 oz/gal.
