Don't count on any great control from oil. Lace bugs can over winter as both adult and egg. Why bother with oil when they are so easy to control. Orthene is a contact with systemic proprties, you need to spray the underside of the leaves. Monitor the plants for early activity in the spring and treat when they appear. Make sure you're not confusing excrement with eggs. Also, if the plants are in the shade where they want to be there will be very little Lace bug activity. If you must plant Azaleas in the full sun use varities that are more resistant to Lace Bug. Eric
