    You could try Home Depot or Lowes. I have seen it in those stores. Depends on the area. Be sure to ask in the garden deptment. Good Luck.

    Thank you Margaret, I'll try that. Hope I can find it. all my azaleas have lace bugs I've been spraying Vicks slick dormant oil but it's just so expensive for the amount I need. Thought I would price the stuff to MYO I found on this site.

    Here's the dormant Oil mix I use.:

    1 gallon mineral oil
    1 pound oil-based soap
    1/2 gallon water


    Combine all ingredients, boil, and mix very well. Dilute 1:20 with water and use immediately because the ingredients separate quickly.

    Spray on a day when the temperature is above 40 degrees and you are not expecting a freeze for at least 24 hours. Drench the branches of your shrubs and trees thoroughly - it's impossible to overdo it.

    DO NOT use this mixture on citrus trees!

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you,

    so glad to get another MYO recipe , the only oil based soap I know is my liquid Murphys Oil soap. Since you said pound I'm assuming the oil based soap is not a liquid. Could I get the brand you use and where to find it???

    I use Murphy's Oil Soap too! I just weigh it to get 1 pound. I could weigh and measure it later this week if you don't have a scale to weigh it out so you know how much to use! Just let me know.

    Thank you, that would be much appreciated, I only have the bathroom scale and not sure how accurate it would be for weighing just 1 pound. Thank you so much for your help.

    Ok, I had a little time just now and measured out 1 pound of Murphy Oil Soap and it is 1 1/2 cups.
