Product Overview

Safer Brand 16 oz. Concentrate Insect Killing Soap kills a variety of insect pests including aphids, whiteflies and mealybugs. Safer Brand Insect Killing Soap utilizes the power of potassium salts of fatty acids to 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 16 fl. oz. container will make 6 gal of protection for your garden. 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. It breaks down into their natural elements within 7-10 days and will not persist in the environment.

  • 16 fl. Oz. concentrate- makes up to 6 gal.
  • Contains potassium salts of fatty acids (49.52%)
  • Targets and kills aphids, earwigs, grasshoppers, harlequin bugs, leafhoppers, mealy bugs, mites, plant bugs, psyllids, sawfly larvae, soft scales, spider mites, and whiteflies
  • Can be used up until the day of harvest
  • OMRI Listed and compliant for use in organic gardening
  • Will not persist in the environment
  • No residual impact on the environment

Answer: 
The product is highly concentrated, with recommended mix ratio of 2 1/2 ounces per gallon. Since you asked about a 16 oz volume that would be 1/8th of a gallon amount, or 5/16th of an ounce. I think it would be easier to mix 1 gallon at a time...I used a 1-gallon milk jug and measured out 2 1/2 ounces. I cleaned and marked "Insect Soap" on the jug with a felt pen...this stuff looks like milk when mixed! Read More

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 40 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Quality Product I purchased Safer for a commercial interior landscape company that I work for. We typically try to stay away from using pesticides so Safer is a great product for us. Safer is really good at controlling foliage based insects such as mealy bugs, the only down side is it has an odor that some may find offensive. The concentrate is a good value compared to the premixed ready to use bottles, if the label is followed you should get almost 6.5 gallons out of one bottle. If you're looking for a non-chemical control of insects then Safer is what I would recommend. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It worked. Recommended by a friend to kill the little caterpillars eating our Mugho Pine bushes. It worked. Insects disappeared. Bushes look good. August 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by purchased insecticidal soap great product kills the insects that I intend it to kill August 11, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointing Product applied as directed but had no effect on what it claims to fix, Over priced and not effective. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Insect killing soap Use the product as specified and you get the results expected. I only wish that it came in a larger size August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Inta-kill Follow the instructions. The ratio is 1:50... I use ml... mix 10 ml of killing soap to half liter of water. Use sprayer that produces fine spray almost a mist. Got to get under the leaves. Do a spray test first, some leafs can't take too much, or maybe reduce the strength. June 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beat expectations!! This is the second "green" product I used to get rid of aphids on my flowering bushes in the backyard. I was pleasantly surprised that it only took one application and there was no more evidence of the bugs!!! I used another "green" product prior to this one that did not work at all. June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Should say: shows exact size The soap came quickly but i was shocked how small the bottle was. it is very concentrated works fine. I wish there was a measured dispenser attached or a differently designed bottle some i could measure the soap with out dirtying anything else up May 17, 2016
