Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BikerDan Safe Way to Get Rid of Garden Pests
I use insecticidal soap as a nontoxic way to control aphids and scale in my garden without harming beneficial insects such as monarch butterfly caterpillars. The soap kills the unwanted bugs on contact and then quickly and harmlessly dries up.
As long as you get an adequate amount of soap on the bugs, it appears to kill all of them. I’ve never timed how fast the kill is, but the bugs I spray one day are dead the next day, and are often dried up by then as well.
Trigger pump provides a spray or a stream. I prefer to use the stream setting so I only hit the infested area. Always make sure to spray both the tops and bottoms of the leaves.
If you use a lot of this, you can save money by buying insecticidal soap concentrate here on HomeDepot.com

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Redhead Works on powdery mildew
I used this soap to kill powdery mildew on some bushes 2 years ago. Unfortunately, it has returned on other bushes so I am using it again with great anticipation. Spray directly from bottle directly on powdery mildew and other insects, i.e., aphids, mealybugs, mites, leafhoppers, psyllids, scale, thrips, whiteflies, earwigs, grasshoppers, lacebugs and more. It is for use on vegetables, fruit trees, ornamentals, shrubs, flowers & gardens. For indoor, outdoor, and greenhouse use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by a4andrew One application took care of my bug problem (probably aphids)
This was very effective with our basil that was getting eaten up by what I suspect to be aphids (never saw them). Just one thorough application seem to have gotten rid of all of them. I can only recommend that the sprayer would distribute the liquid wider than narrow. It sprays out with a narrow heavy concentration - I'm sure it is more effective for specific areas, but I wondered if it was overkill. But just to ensure I got rid of the bugs, I drenched much of all the petals with several sprays per plant.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nolongerbitten Stuff that works.
Had a lot of that bad white stuff on my palm plants (mealy bugs. I went to Home Depot and saw several products that said they could cure it. I picked the least expensive, sprayed it on for about a week and it disappeared. Can't beat that.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Gardeninggranny Did not phase the whiteflies in my garden
The spray simply made the whiteflies move around but did not get rid of any of them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hildi1 Very good and effective. My plants are nice and healthy again!!
This spray (insectizidal soap) went to work on a few of my plants that showed a mealy white accumulation on leaves. It only took one or two applications, and plants are back to health and giving me lots of flowers.
