Unlike many other pesticides that kill insects with toxic chemicals, Summit Year-Round® Spray Oil literally smothers insects to death. The oil spray blocks an insect’s breathing holes (called spiracles), causing it to die from asphyxiation.

Summit Year-Round® Spray Oil is a lightweight horticultural oil that can be used any time during the year because it won’t harm plant buds, shoots and leaves. This lightweight oil will effectively control pests on even the most sensitive plants, such as roses, impatiens, philodendrons and ferns. Summit Year-Round® Spray Oil is an environmentally responsible insecticide that kills a wide variety of insect pests including aphids, whiteflies, spider mites, mealybugs, scale, thrips, fungus gnats, certain caterpillars, leaf beetle larvae, lace bugs and others.

Because of its low toxicity, organic Summit Year-Round® Spray Oil can be used on garden plants and fruit trees right up to the day of harvest. The spray has no odor, and it can be used on trees, flowers, vegetable plants and indoors in greenhouses and on houseplants. Unlike chimcal pesticides which can become less effective after repeated use, there is no known build-up of insect resistance to horticultural oil sprays.

Summit Year-Round® Spray Oil is an OMRI Listed®, environmentally friendly, all-season horticultural oil that kills a wide variety of insect pests by suffocating them.

Using Summit Year-Round® Spray Oil is quick and easy. Simply dilute the concentrate with water according to package instructions and apply an even spray on trees, shrubs, flowers and plants to kill insect pests. Apply every seven to 14 days as needed. Summit Year-Round® Spray Oil also prevents the spread of viruses by aphids, and it helps control powdery mildew.

Summit Year-Round® Spray Oil concentrate is available in three different sizes—one pint, one quart and one gallon. The one-pint bottle (which makes 12.5 gallons of spray) sells for the suggested retail price of $7.99. The one-quart bottle (which makes 25 gallons of spray) sells for $10.99. The one-gallon jug of Summit Year-Round® Spray Oil concentrate (which makes 100 gallons of spray) sells for $29.99.
