Kills Destructive Insects on Contact
Safer® Brand Insect Killing Soap uses potassium salts of fatty acids to kill soft-bodied insect pests on contact. Potassium salts of fatty acids work by weakening and breaking down the protective outer shell of the insect, ultimately triggering dehydration and death.
Potassium salts of fatty acids are derived from the natural acids found in animal fats and plant oils. Simply spray your plants at the first sign of insect damage, and apply every 5- 7 days as long as insects are present.
Insect Killing Soap is gentle enough to use directly on your plants to keep them pest-free. Potassium salts of fatty acids targets the soft-bodied insects attacking your vegetation, giving your plants the opportunity to thrive.
Mix this concentrate and use Safer® Brand Insect Killing Soap on flowers, fruits, vegetable, houseplants, trees, shrubs and ornamentals. When mixed appropriately, it is gentle enough to be used up until the day of harvest and the solution will not persist in the environment after application.
How to Use Insect Killing Soap
It’s important to thoroughly drench all plant surfaces (including and the bottom of the leaves). Continue to spray the solution to the point that it begins to drip off the plant.
As a general rule, much like watering, do not use this product when the sun is at its highest point in the sky or when temperatures exceed 90 degrees F. Application during these times could cause wilting or browning of the leaves. Since Safer® Brand Insect Killing Soap is a contact killer, multiple applications may be needed for full control.
An Economical, Easy-to-Mix Solution
This 16oz bottle contains a concentrated insecticidal soap solution that creates over 48 times that amount in usable insect-killing spray. Simply mix a small amount of concentrate with water as directed until you have the desired amount of insecticidal soap.
Store any unmixed concentrate in a cool place for later use. One 16oz bottle of concentrate makes up to 6 gallons of solution, which is the equivalent to 24 bottles of our ready-to-use spray! This entire bottle will cover up to 1,600 square feet of plantings.
Compliant for Use in Organic Gardening
Organic gardening can be a rewarding hobby that offers economic and health benefits. An organic gardening regimen can save you money by creating sustainable gardens that feed the soil in which the gardens grow. This produces greater yields and reduces the need for you to apply fertilizers and pest controls. Increased organic matter in your soil also reduces erosion and conserves water. Growers say the fruits and vegetables produced in organic gardens are often more flavorful and nutrient-dense.
Safer® Brand Insect Killing Soap Concentrate has been third-party reviewed for use in organic gardening by the Organic Materials Review Institute to carry the OMRI Listed® seal, which means it has been deemed compliant for use in organic gardening by the USDA’s National Organic Program.
