How to use:
This process is best to do when it is the hottest time of year.
1. Put on protective gloves and googles to keep lime sulfur off of skin and out of eyes. An N95 particulate mask is also recommended.
2. Moisten or wet deadwood 1 hour prior to applying. The object is to let the water saturate the deadwood which will allow the lime sulfur to easily enter the deadwood.
3. Dilute lime sulfur as desired with water. This lime sulfur is a concentrate, but has been used without diluting. I usually do 50/50
4. Apply lime sulfur with a short, stiff bristle brush (nylon works best).
5. Avoid getting lime sulfur on anything other than deadwood. Lime sulfur will remove the color from most things.
6. Reapply as needed after drying.
