Description & Documents
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. 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 this product every 7-10 days when insects are present or as needed to prevent further damage. Safer Brand's insecticidal soap is ideal for aphid control and mealy bug 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 is safe to use around children and pets. It 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, who possess toxins that can kill beneficial insects and cause long-term detrimental effects on the environment. Another negative effect of chemical pesticides is the fact that insects can possibly buildup a resistance to the chemicals in the pesticides
