Organic Insecticide Soap

Potato Bug and other critter problems getting you down? Well there is hope! If you don’t much care for the use of insecticides and are looking for a more organic method, you can always try insecticide soap. This soap helps to kill insects on contact, through natural chemicals such as pyrethrins and potassium salts of fatty acids. A brand that can be found at local stores is called Safer and are one of the leading organic brands out there. There are others but make sure that they are certified organic. You don’t want to buy something and have it turn around and hurt your plants. Always read the labels on the back that way you know the proper way to apply and store the product. The soap usually between 10-20 dollars depending on the size of the container and where you buy it from. This is a great alternative then synthetic chemical insecticides.
