A disinfectant for those hard to reach areas of empty greenhouses. The alternative is to wash with a liquid disinfectant such as Citrox, but the candle smoke will find it's way into nooks and crannies that washing won't. Sufficient to disinfect any size greenhouse up to 10 cubic metres in volume - approximately a 3m x 2m (10ft x 6ft) greenhouse. For larger greenhouses, use further candles simultaneously, as appropriate.
Easy to use. Full instructions on pack. Note: all plants must be removed from the greenhouse before using the candle.
Please note this product will not clean the greenhouse; if necessary, sweep and wash the greenhouse prior to disinfecting. Read all precautions before use. See that all doors, ventilating windows, etc. are completely closed and any holes in the structure are sealed.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Remove all plants with the exception of dormant peach trees and vines before disinfecting. Ensure that all doors, window and vents are firmly closed. Place the Sulphur Candle on a brick or in a metal container in the middle of the greenhouse and light. The sulphur around the wick will melt and burn with a very pale blue, almost invisible, flame. Leave the greenhouse completely closed and sealed. After 12 hours open the greenhouse and ventilate to remove fumes.
Certain coloured items, e.g. floor coverings and fabrics may be discoloured by the disinfecting process.
Remove any highly polished metal articles as they may be tarnished by the fumes. Aluminium greenhouses are normally protected by a layer of oxidation. Treatment Rate One 300g sulphur candle is sufficient to disinfect 18 cubic metres (a 3m x 2m greenhouse).
Contains 98% w/w Sulpur.
