How to Use & When to Apply:
Shake the bottle well before applying. Insecticidal soap works through direct contact, so spray visible insects and wet leaves and stems thoroughly, including undersides of leaves.
Because insecticidal soap works only when wet, apply in the morning or evening when the temperature is cooler so the product won’t evaporate as quickly. Use weekly or bi-weekly as needed.
Bonide Insecticidal Soap can be used on fruits and vegetables until the day of harvest. Wash harvested foods thoroughly. Avoid use on new seedlings, transplants, and blooms, and avoid use in full sun.
Pros to Using Bonide Insecticidal Soap

Cons to Using Bonide Insecticidal Soap
