SeaCide - Natural Insecticide, Fungicide and Miticide
SeaCide controls smaller insects and scales and some disease organisms by coating and suffocating them with natural oils. It works on all stages - eggs, larvae, nymphs and adults - of the target pest. It also has an insect and fungus preventing effect since it coats plants with a fine oil film that repels egg-laying insects and disease organisms.
SeaCide is made from three natural (non-petroleum) ingredients. It is exempt from EPA Registration and can be sprayed on edible plants at any time up to harvest.
SeaCide has been shown to be effective on insects such as (but not limited to):
- Mealy Bugs
- Soft and Armored Scales (including Euonymous Scale)
- Spider Mites (found on most Alberta Spruces)
- Citrus Mites
- White Flies & Sawfly larvae
- Leaf Rollers
- Chinch Bugs
- Leaf Miners
- Sago Pine Scale
SeaCide has shown preventative/curative affects on the following (but not limited to) diseases:
- Black Spot on roses
- Powdery Mildew
- Greasy Spot (citrus/fruit trees)
- Bacterial Leaf Spot
Black Spot on Roses
Cautionary Note. This product is safe to use on most plants, even in hot weather, however the Euphorbia (Crown of Thorns) family has shown some sensitivity. As a general suggestion, plants under drought stress are more susceptible to disease and insect injury and should not be wilting when sprays are applied.

Directions for Use
Use any sprayer that gives out a fine spray pattern. Pump or pressure sprayers, hand misters and commercial sprayers all work well. Hose-end sprayers are generally not recommended unless you are soaking thicker evergreens. Apply in early morning or late evening to minimize potential for leaf burn and evaporation.
Cautions: Do not apply SeaCide to wilted or drought stressed plants or when otherwise stressful plant conditions exist. Do not apply to newly planted material prior to good root establishment. Do not apply to plants known to be sensitive to sprays without testing a small area first. Plants in the Euphorbia (Crown of Thorns) family should not be sprayed

Mixing: Add SeaCide to water that is preferably no colder than 55 degrees. Container should be at least ½ filled with water before adding SeaCide. Agitate well and keep agitated until solution is used. For small sprayers, simply shake frequently while applying. If mixing with other products, add Seacide last and agitate until uniformly mixed. A jar test is recommended before mixing or spraying to ensure compatibility.
Do not save mixed solutions. Use all that you mix the same day.
SeaCide is normally applied at a 1 - 2% solution
1 % = 2 tsp/quart water or 1¼ oz per gallon water or 1¼ gal per 100 gallons water
2 % = 4 tsp/quart water or 2½ oz per gallon water or 2½ gal per 100 gallons water
Apply an even coating on all leaves and branches of plants. Spray top and bottom of leaves as well as trunk or stem. Start applications before infestations as a preventative measure.
For control of greasy spot, apply SeaCide™ at a 1-2% solution in combination with Copper @ 2 lbs. active ingredient per acre as a preventative spray tank mixture.
Miticide Use: For control of mites on citrus, use SeaCide™ at a 1-2% spray mixture per acre. For low volume application, apply 0.5 gallons of SeaCide™ with a minimum of 5 gallons of water per acre.
VEGETABLE, SMALL FRUITS & BERRIES, GRAINS and MISCELLANEOUS CROPS
Fungicide Use: Apply SeaCide™ at a rate of 1% solution per acre. Repeat application every 7-14 days. For low volumes, apply 1 quart of SeaCide™ in a minimum of 5 gallons of water.
Insecticide Use: Apply SeaCide™ at first sign of pest or pest damage at a 0.5-1% solution in sufficient water to ensure thorough coverage of plant and leaf surface. Repeat application as needed for adequate control every 7-14 days. Larger more mature crops will need higher amounts of water to ensure complete coverage.
STONE, POME, TROPICAL FRUITS and NUTS
Spider Mite Damage on an Alberta Spruce
Fungicide Use: Apply SeaCide™ at 1-2% solution per acre. For low volume application, apply 1 quart of SeaCide™ with a minimum of 5 gallons of water per acre. Repeat application every 7-14 days.
Insecticide / Miticide Use: Apply SeaCide™ at 1-2% solution per acre. For low volume application, apply 1 quart of SeaCide™ with a minimum of 5 gallons of water per acre. Repeat application as needed every 7-14 days.
Walnuts: Avoid spraying after husk split.
Sago Palm Scale: Make 3 applications - a week to 10 days apart. Treat the whole tree, including the trunk. Preventative treatments can be applied up to twice a month.
Chinch Bugs in lawns: Treat affected area heavily at 3-4 gallons of 1% solution per 1000 sf. Water lightly to get the oil off the blades and onto the soil. Repeat in 7 days if necessary.
Note: To ensure compatibility with other spray materials, a jar compatibility test is recommended before mixing or spraying in tank solution. Add SeaCide™ last to the tank mix and agitate to ensure uniform mix before applying. (Never mix concentrates directly together.)
CAUTION: MAY BE HARMFUL IF SWALLOWED. AVOID CONTACT WITH EYES, SKIN, OPEN CUTS OR SORES. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. WASH HANDS AFTER USE. DO NOT STORE OR SAVE MIXED SOLUTIONS. USE ALL THAT YOU MIX THE SAME DAY.
Special Handling: Maintain product at 55° F (10° C), or above to ensure flowability.
