I recently sprayed my vft with Take Down Garden Spray. Its pyrethin with canola oil as the binder. I had bad luck with Neem Oil spraying my plants in the dead of day and burning the foliage. I sprayed them at sunset thinking that they would be fine the next day.

Are these marks oil burn or the potential cause for something else?
