Safer® Insect Killing Soap relies on potassium salts of fatty acids to kill soft-bodied insect pests on contact. Potassium salts of fatty acids operate by reducing and breaking down an insect's protective outer shell and eventually causing dehydration and death. Derived from naturally occurring acids found in animal fats and plant oils. Just spray your plants at the first sign of insect damage and repeat every 5- 7 days as long as you still have pests.
