A staple in organic pest control, this contact insecticidal soap is derived from potassium salts and is totally biodegradable as well as environmentally safe.
It works as a smothering and desiccating agent on a wide variety of insects. Since it works on contact, it must be sprayed directly onto the pest. Do not spray foliage in full sun; spray in early morning or in the evening when temperatures are below 85°. Be sure to spray the undersides of leaves.

- A curative control of powdery mildew
- Hard water reduces the soap's effectiveness. If your water is hard, you must use a water conditioner or soft water such as Sequestar Water Softener
- Sunspray or Natur'L Oil enhances its absorption
