Has anyone used "Zero Tolerance"

I just ordered some and I was told that it is very effective, especially for scale......and it smells good. It should arrive today and I expect to use it soon. - - Marilyn

Zero Tolerance eliminates plant pests. This herbal Pesticide-Fungicide is made from the highest quality oils of cinnamon, clove, rosemary and thyme.

Zero Tolerance not only stops pests in their tracks, it smells great too! It's made from pure food grade ingredients and is plant, people and pet friendly. Zero Tolerance is bio-degradable and environmentally safe so you can use it without worry.

Works in outdoor gardens, greenhouses and indoor hydroponic systems. Zero Tolerance not only kills existing pest infestations fast, it repels against new attacks.

We've used it on our orchids and bonsai trees and saw no sign of plant stress. For fruits and vegetables, Zero Tolerance can be applied up to 5 days before harvest.

Zero Tolerance eliminates:

Spider Mites
Root Aphids
Powdery Mildew
Gray and White Mold

I haven't heard of it. But wouldn't it be wonderful if it actually worked.

Please keep us posted on the results you get with it.

Deb,I talked with someone who uses it and I was told it works better than anything he has ever used for scale. I have a little bit of scale now. I'll let you know how it works. I should have it tomorrow.

So, did you like Zero Tolerance? Did you notice any anti-fungal properties?
