Plant Defense is a broad-spectrum botanical insecticide and miticide that utilizes a multi-pronged approach to combat plant pests. Natural oils smother and suffocate on contact. Soap penetrates and strips the waxy exterior of soft-bodied insects, allowing them to dry out. Aromatic oils discourage and repel additional crop invaders. Because it employs a variety of physical strategies, pests are unlikely to develop resistance to this product. Plant Defense is suitable for use in ORGANIC AGRICULTURE and useful as a component of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Programs.
INSECTS CONTROLLED: Mites, Aphids, Thrips, White Fly, and many additional types of insect pests.
