Features & Benefits
Safer® Brand Insect Killing Soap uses potassium salts of fatty acids to kill soft-bodied insect pests on contact. Potassium salts of fatty acids work by weakening and breaking down the protective outer shell of the insect, ultimately triggering dehydration and death.
Potassium salts of fatty acids are derived from the natural acids found in animal fats and plant oils. Simply spray your plants at the first sign of insect damage, and apply every 5- 7 days as long as insects are present.
For use on a variety of plants
Insect Killing Soap is gentle enough to use directly on your plants to keep them pest-free. Potassium salts of fatty acids targets the soft-bodied insects attacking your vegetation, giving your plants the opportunity to thrive.
Mix this concentrate and use Safer® Brand Insect Killing Soap on flowers, fruits, vegetable, houseplants, trees, shrubs and ornamentals. When mixed appropriately, it is gentle enough to be used up until the day of harvest and the solution will not persist in the environment after application.
How to use Insect Killing Soap
It’s important to thoroughly drench all plant surfaces (including and the bottom of the leaves). Continue to spray the solution to the point that it begins to drip off the plant.
As a general rule, much like watering, do not use this product when the sun is at its highest point in the sky or when temperatures exceed 90 degrees F. Application during these times could cause wilting or browning of the leaves. Since Safer® Brand Insect Killing Soap is a contact killer, multiple applications may be needed for full control.
An economical, easy-to-mix solution
This 16oz bottle contains a concentrated insecticidal soap solution that creates over 48 times that amount in usable insect-killing spray. Simply mix a small amount of concentrate with water as directed until you have the desired amount of insecticidal soap.
Store any unmixed concentrate in a cool place for later use. One 16oz bottle of concentrate makes up to 6 gallons of solution, which is the equivalent to 24 bottles of our ready-to-use spray! This entire bottle will cover up to 1,600 square feet of plantings.

My vegetable plants in my garden are being devastated by whiteflies. What can I do to get rid of them?
Using Insecticidal Soap is an excellent method of controlling whiteflies. Be sure to spray both the tops and bottoms of the leaves. Neem oil can also be used, but try it on just a few leaves to see if there is any wilting. Follow the directions on the label of the container.
Another method for controlling whiteflies is to use whitefly traps or sticky tape traps. The bright yellow color of the trap's tape attracts and traps whiteflies. Hang the traps over the plants. When the trap is full simply replace with another one as needed to keep whiteflies under control.
Is a spider mite an insect or is it actually a spider?
Spider mites belong to a class called arachnids, to which spiders also belong. They are not actually insects. They do cause plenty of problems for plants, however, unlike their larger relatives.
My cabbage and broccoli plants are being eaten by bugs that look like they have a colorful shield on their backs. What are they and how do I get rid of them?
These pests are known as harlequin bugs. Products containing Insecticidal Soap (potassium salts of fatty acids) and Pyrethrin are very effective on these nasty pests.
My neighbor told me I have scales on some of my ornamental plants. What are scale and how do I get rid of them?
Scale are tiny insects that attack many plants, sucking the sap or juices from the plants and plant leaves. Insecticidal sprays and Neem Oil products are effective in controlling these pests.
Isn't "insecticidal soap" just dishwashing liquid or soap added to water?
No. Commercially produced Insecticidal soaps sold at garden centers and similar retail stores are composed of potassium salts of fatty acids from plants and animals. They work by penetrating and destroying the outer shell or membrane of the insect causing it to dehydrate and die.
