Zero Tolerance FAQ

1. Dilution: How? Ratio? When? Full versus diluted differently for different problems?

Zero Rolerance should be used at the strongest strength that does not significantly damage leaves. That way there is a sure kill with no remafiiing pests.

First test ZT on a branch or two. If there is no damage use full strength. If there is any damage add one pint water to two pints ZT and test. Most likely there will be no damage in the new test. If there is dilute with another pint of water.

2. Diluted for all stages of growth?

Don't dilute if you don't have to.

3. Use Zero Tolerance how close to harvest?

The oils will all evaporate over a four to five day period.

4. Coverage: Area of the grow area?

Spray all leaves and branches and places that pests might hide.

5. Saturation of the plant?

The leaves have to be sprayed completely but not to drip.

6. Self and storage advice.

Store in a cool, dark space with cap tightly sealed.

7. Can the plant be dipped rather than sprayed?


8. Hydroponic: can it be used in a reservoir?

Rather than using it in a reservoir directly, shut the system off and water the medium with a solution of I part ZT and 2-3 parts water.

9. Root aphids and root rot: how to apply?

Apply to roots after testing try one part ZT to two or three parts water. Beneficial nematodes are more effective than ZT and they need to be used only once to solve the problem. That's because they are living organisms and reproduce.
