Insecticidal soap has been a staple for organic gardeners since Safer Brand first introduced it in 1987. Now Safer Brand ups the ante with this new insect killing soap formula, which adds the power of seaweed extract. The extra ingredient not only makes the formula more effective at killing insects, but gentler on your plants. No other insecticidal soap on the market can make the same claim. This version of the insect killing soap comes in a 32-ounce bottle, but it's also available in a 16-ounce concentrate.
Safer Brand insect killing soap employs potassium salts of fatty acids (insecticidal soap) in the perfect concentration to eliminate soft-bodied insects such as aphids, mealybugs, leafhoppers, and whiteflies on contact. Plus, unlike leading synthetic formulas--which can leave harmful chemicals on your tomatoes and other garden plants--the spray breaks down into its natural state within five to seven days, leaving no residuals. As a result, you can use the spray all the way up until the day of harvest.
The Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) has given Safer Brand insect killing soap its prestigious OMRI-listed seal. The soap is also approved for use in organic gardening by the USDA National Organic Program. With Safer Brand insect killing soap, you can keep your garden organic while still ridding it of harmful insects.
The soap targets and kills such insects as aphids, beetles (leaf feeding), leafhoppers, mealybugs, mites, plant bugs, scale crawlers, thrips, caterpillars (leaf feeding), and whiteflies. This versatility makes it an ideal choice for plot gardens, raised beds, container gardening, indoor gardening, and a variety of other garden applications. Plus, the spray is safe on all types of plants, including roses, flowers, fruits, vegetables, houseplants, trees, shrubs, and ornamentals. Safer Brand insect killing soap is most effective when used upon the first sighting of insects or their damage. It's important to cover both the top and bottom of the leaves with a generous application of spray.
