This OMRI-listed and compliant for use in organic gardening 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. The potassium salts 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 gallons 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. 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 insect killing soap is highly preferable to chemical pesticides, which 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.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mixing Ratio May Need to Be Changed I had spider mites all over my Desert Rose. Initially, I used the mixing ratio per the instructions but that did not kill the spider mites. Then I used twice the strength and that seem to work, and it did not harm the plant. December 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product I use this product on our heritage oak trees that get infested with aphids and spider mites every year. Got tired of paying $60.00 per application, for a "professional" to spray the trees twice a year. Bought this product in a spray bottle and couldn't believe the results. The bottle only lasted on one tree. Now, I will get a sprayer and the concentrate and do it myself. $10. for the sprayer, $18 for the product, beats the heck out of $120 plus a year. Best part, it works. June 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Safer Insecticidal Soap Spray I've used this for years on outdoor plants. I use it on houseplants before bringing indoors for the Winter.. It is a very good product. Killed whiteflies on Celosia annuals 2 years ago with no wilting problems at all. I would definitely recommend this product. July 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Safer is safer and very effective I bought this product after checking out all the products that kill bedbugs, which I had a horrible problem with. I wanted something that was safe for my cat and me and could be used indoors. It is just a small bottle, but I dilute it with water. It works great. I'm ordering another bottle, not because I have the bedbugs, but since I have other biting insects (maybe dust mites?), so I want to make sure I get all of the little vampires out of my apartment. Out of all the products I tried to get rid of the infestation, this one worked the best, along with covers for my mattress and pillows. I am definitely pleased with Safer. February 5, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works much better than homemade version. This product works much better than homemade versions, and is far more affordable than buying premixed. However, it would be nice if they made the cap as a predetermined measure to make mixing small batches easier. June 25, 2011
