What Is Insecticidal Soap?
Insecticidal soap is a very safe product for killing many kinds of pest insects inside and outside the home. The primary ingredients in insecticidal soap are potassium fatty acid salts. Because these salts are relatively nontoxic they offer a safe pest control alternative for many plants indoors and out. Although called “soap,” this compound is not the same as household kitchen soap, which is actually a detergent that works very differently and is actually toxic to plants. Insecticidal soap has been specially formulated to kill specific pests and to avoid injuring treated plants and beneficial insects such as green lacewings and ladybugs.
