Definition of lime sulfur

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by Terry:

A pesticide mixture formed from hydrated lime and sulfur and used as a dormant spray when temperatures are below 75 Fahrenheit.

It can be created by combining 20 pounds of rock lime and 15 pounds of flowers of sulfur with 50 gallons of water. Boil (outside - it has sulfur, remember!) for one hour, then allow to cool and settle. The strained, amber fluid is lime sulfur. It can also be purchased pre-made.
