A Sul­phur can­dles have been with­drawn along with other prod­ucts based on sul­phur that were ap­proved as fungi­cides. For sim­ply clean­ing and ster­il­is­ing the green­house you could opt for Jeyes Fluid, or any of the range of prod­ucts sold for such pur­poses, such as Citrox. You could fol­low this up with one of a num­ber of prod­ucts avail­able as fu­mi­gants for in­sect con­trol. Pest-Stop Bio­fume Green­house Fu­mi­ga­tor is based on gar­lic ex­tract, while Dead­fast Green­house Smoke Gen­er­a­tor and Vi­tax Green­house Fu­mi­ga­tor are both based on per­me­thrin.
