I've been using this product for several years, now and really like it. I had scale on my fig trees and after spraying the scale with alcohol to start the killing process, I sprayed it with the Insect Killing Soap and the scale died quickly, though I didn't see anything on the label about it being for scale. Can't get better than that. In comparison, when I had run out of this soap, I bought a different brand from Home Depot. or Lowe's that was also an insect killing soap and it didn't do as good a job, though it WAS listed to kill scale. I'm sold on Safer Brand products.Date published: 2015-07-29Rated 5 out of 5 by ctwebb from Safer Insecticidal Soap Greatest stuff!
