Soaps, Oils & More!

What makes these lawn-and-garden-friendly pest controls safer than traditional chemical sprays and powders? They’re made from natural, minimally-processed ingredients and short-lived, non-or-minimally toxic compounds, all with the best-interest of your family and other living things in mind. (To assure safety, don’t over apply and follow instructions carefully.) How do they work?

• Insecticidal soaps penetrate the insect’s outer body and break down its ability to retain liquid, causing death through dehydration.

• Abrasive powders such as non-toxic diatomaceous earth, also causes dehydration after scratching through the insects outer layer.

• Horticultural oil kills as it smothers insect pests and their eggs.
