The Safer® Brand Insect Killing Soap is widely used in organic gardening pest control. This formula kills a variety of insect pests but won't harm beneficial insects when used as directed.
This popular organic product 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 possess toxins that can cause long-term detrimental effects on the environment.
The ability to use this organic pest control product in your home and in your lawn or garden makes it the most economical and convenient solution to pest annoyances available on the market.
