Safer® Brand Insect Killing Soap - 24oz. RTU

 

This OMRI®-listed and compliant for use in organic gardening pest control formula kills a variety of insect pests but won't harm beneficial insects when used as directed.

 

Insecticidal soap for mealybug control

The Safer® Brand Insect Killing Soap utilizes the power of potassium salts of fatty acids (insecticidal soap). The potassium salts weaken the insect’s waxy protective outer shell. Apply every 7-10 days when insects are present or as needed to prevent further damage.

 

This is what makes Safer® Brand's insecticidal soap ideal for aphid control and mealybug control as it will dehydrate the insect by breaking down its waxy membrane.

 

Since Safer® Brand Insect Killing Soap, 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.

 

Unlike traditional synthetic chemicals, Safer® Brand Insect Killing Soap breaks down into their natural elements within 7-10 days, leaving no residual impact on the environment.

 

Safer® Brand Insecticidal soap is highly preferable to chemical pesticides, that can cause long-term detrimental effects on the environment.
