What makes K+Neem Insecticidal Soap Concentrate different?

Made from extracts of Indian Neem Tree, seed oil - insecticidal soaps are an environmentally sound delivery system for compounds with insecticidal properties.
K+ Neem contains a blend of potassium salts of fatty acids that differ from the fatty acids found in other conventional insecticidal soaps. This is the unique difference that puts K-neem in a class by itself. No other K+Neem insecticidal soap product is formulated without the addition of chemical solvents and alcohol.
Because K+Neem Insecticidal Soap contains none of these ingredients, it is of increased interest to organic conscious managers and growers who want to avoid the use of pesticides containing harsh chemicals. K+Neem Insecticidal Soap is less hazardous to people, and less harmful to beneficial wildlife.

How K+Neem Works
The spray solution allows for more efficient contact with insects, their eggs, larvae, and pupae, and the plant itself.
* As a contact, it biodegrades the exoskeleton of the insect and causes disruption of sensory and physiological functions, leading to expiration.
*As a repellent for foliage feeder, K+Neem Insecticidal Soap® repels the insect by making plants unpalatable.
These multiple modes of action help make K+Neem Insecticidal Soap® not only safer than toxic chemicals, but more effective for controlling a wide range of pests.

K+Neem comes in one and five gallon containers of concentrate.

Application Rates: K+Neem Insecticidal Soap is a contact insecticide. Dilute the concentrate 1:50 with soft water. Spray plants and turf sufficiently to wet all surfaces.

For turf applications, a nonionic surfactant may be added to increase penetration beneath the thatch layer for control of chinch bugs and mole crickets. Apply 1 to 2 gallons (of concentrate in solution) per acre, or 3-6 ounces (of concentrate in solution) per 1,000 square feet.

Application Guidelines K+Neem Insecticidal Soap should be mixed with soft water. If only hard water is available (a scum appears on the spray solution surface after 15 minutes), the addition of a water softening agent such as "Calgon", may be used.

A defoaming agent may also be used to reduce foaming in sprayers with an agitator. Always try to spray for target insects when they are feeding. Good spray coverage is essential for best results. Spraying in evening or early morning helps increase effectiveness by lengthening drying time.

See label for specific application rates. The table above is intended to illustrate only the general range of product application and efficacy. DO NOT apply over a 5% solution at one time.
