Safer® Brand Insect Killing Soap - 24oz RTU
This OMRI Listed® and compliant for use in organic production pest control formula kills a variety of insect pests but is gentle on plants with no unpleasant odor.
The Safer® Brand Insect Killing Soap With Seaweed Extract utilizes the power of potassium salts of fatty acids (insecticidal soap). The potassium salts weaken the insect’s waxy protective outer shell. Apply every 5-7 days when insects are present or as needed to prevent further damage.
Safer® Brand's insecticidal soap works for aphid control and mealybug control as it dehydrates the insect by breaking down its waxy membrane.
Since Safer® Brand Insect Killing Soap With Seaweed Extract, is a contact killer, several applications may be needed for full control. As a general rule, much like watering, do not use these products in the peak of the day or when temperatures exceed 90 degrees F to avoid wilting or browning of the leaves.
Safer® Brand Insect Killing Soap with Seaweed Extract is a special formulation of insecticidal soap that kills insects yet is gentle on plants. This product will not persist in the environment, and can be used up until the day of harvest.

Review RateWill in the spring.
I have been spraying my lemon trees, to prevent bugs from coming on them, also my houseplants, I will know in the spring if it works on the lemon trees. I have also been using your fungicide on my roses, and it is working, I am very pleased with this product
Review RateYES, IT WORKED!!
I was skeptical that this product would work. I had a terrible invasion of Harlequin bugs, and it all seemed hopeless. I stood by watching helplessly while they ate my garden up. They killed my cabbage and broccoli. I pulled them all up in the hopes of getting rid of the bugs. But noooooo...they just moved to my carrots, cilantro, peppermint! They moved to wherever they could on a live plant. I was so discouraged. Then, I got this product and used a whole bottle of it right away. Yes! It works! I use it about once a week if I see another Harlequin bug, and that does the trick! And, I was hopeful about my garden again. Things started to grow again, and I saved my garden! I love the fact that you can use it up to day of harvest. I felt safe using it and eating my produce. This stuff is awesome!
Review RateIt Works!
I was having issues with grasshoppers chewing on everything. This product works - I am no longer seeing damage on existing plants or seedlings.
Review RateNo more mealybugs!
I found mealybugs on my favorite houseplants. Effort was made to get rid of them but nothing worked. After lots of research, I found your spray. The mealybugs are now gone. Thank you.

Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comI had an infestation of aphids on my water plants that I have in my greenhouse. I was worried about spraying them because they are planted in the tank I use as a filter for my aquarium. But since it was safe I chanced it. Now when I say I had an infestation I mean, I've never seen so many aphids! they were killing my Water hyacinth really fast! I sprayed VERY liberally and hope for the best. I know for a fact I got a lot in the water. Overnight the aphids were ALL DEAD!!! I couldn't believe it! every single one was frozen where it was. This spray like stuck them to the leaf and killed them. Its been a week since I've sprayed and they are all still dead and the fish are just fine and so are all of my aquarium plants and other plants I sprayed in the green house! I love this stuff!!!
