Highly refined soap made from natural oils which acts as a contact insecticide with no residual effects once it has dried.
Sold in 250ml bottles.
Ideal to use before the introduction of biological controls, perhaps while waiting for the residue of previous chemical sprays to dissipate. Soft Soap Concentrate reduces population and the breeding capabilities of Aphids, Whiteflies, Red Spider Mites, Thrips, Mealybug and Scale. Soft soap works by plugging up the breathing holes in the insects body, and also by sticking their wings and moving parts together. It is not a poison, so can be safely used on edible crops.
The dilution rate is 1:100. So the 250ml bottle will go a long way. If the infection is limited to a few plants you can carefully wash each leaf with dilute soap. For larger infections use a dilute spray of this pure soap to get into shoots and flowers. Stick to the dilution rate to avoid cell damage.
