Eco-oil is white oil, "Hippo Enhanced". The manufacturers claim:
Eco-oil is a registered organic miticide
and insecticide (registered with BFA). It controls a range of problem insects including
scale, aphids, two-spotted mite, whitefly and citrus leafminer. Safe for
use on vegies, as well as ornamentals, with no withholding period.
Spray and eat on the same day! Also safe for beneficial insects like
bees, ladybeetles and earthworms.
eco-oil is now HIPPO Enhanced!
HIPPO Enhanced eco-oil is a revolutionary approach to pest control and is the results of a 3 year research project with Charles Sturt University.
The project investigated the natural defense mechanisms of plants, in particular the way plants produce volatile organic compounds when being attacked by pests. These compounds act as SOS messages to beneficial insects letting them know that tasty snacks are on nearby plants! A whole range of beneficial insects are attracted including ladybeetles, lacewings, hoverflies and parasitoids.
The HIPPO Enhanced eco-oil formulation replicates this defence mechanism by including these organic compounds into spray. The research clearly showed that the HIPPO Enhanced eco-oil will attract beneficial insects into the garden. Pretty amazing hey?
So use HIPPO Enhanced eco-oil to kill those troublesome pests and at the same it will attract beneficial insects to help get your garden ecosystem into better balance.
