Safer® Brand Insecticidal Soap & Pyrethrin Concentrate 32oz

Safer® Brand Insecticidal Soap & Pyrethrin Concentrate 32oz

Product Review (submitted on July 11, 2017):

This is a good but limited product. First and foremost, pyrethrin breaks down fast in sunlight, and that's not emphasized in the documentation. It's best if you apply this at sunset or very early in the day to give it time to work before it degrades. Secondly, insecticidal soap is a contact insecticide that only works on soft-shelled insects (aphids and friends). Don't expect it to work on Japanese beetles or the like. Pyrethrin products are expensive because it is organic (harvested) and lasts a day at best. So, it's fine to knock down your aphids, but they'll be back and you'll need more. Probably better to just go for the insecticidal soap alone (less $$), and find a source carrying the 1 gallon or 2.5 gallon jugs. Safer produces a 1 gallon version of the soap, but it's not for sale in their web store. Really makes no sense.Thank you for the time taken to provide this feedback.  We apologize for the experience.  

This product will kill both soft- and hard-bodied insects, including Japanese beetles.  We recommend an application in early morning or later evening to avoid spraying onto beneficial insects that feed during the daytime.
