Get rid of the bugs and unwanted insects with Safer Tomato and Vegetable Insect Killer. It's organic and is OMRI listed for organic gardening compliance.
PHILADELIPHIA, PA, June 10, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The worst thing about gardening and summertime is the bugs. They are the worst. Gardeners are a hearty lot and not much bothers them, but bugs do. Bugs are worse than annoying.
The tricky part to getting rid of bugs is destroying the insects without harming the plants. So gardeners are always in search of effective solutions that accomplish both goals. Organic gardening can be even more complex because a third goal is introduced: no chemicals in the garden.
There are a wide variety of bugs and insects gardeners have to contend with and the list is long: aphids, asparagus beetles, bean beetles, cabbage loopers, caterpillars, Colorado potato beetles, cucumber beetles, diamondbacked moth, flea beetles, imported cabbageworm, leafhoppers, tomato hornworm and whiteflies.
Chemical solutions fill the aisles in garden centers, but for gardeners who want an organic product, Safer Brand offers efficient and effective results.
Safer Tomato and Vegetable Insect Killer combines the effectiveness of pyrethrins and insecticidal soap to kill on contact, but doesn't harm plants. Pyrethrins attack the insect's nervous system and potassium salts weaken the protective outer shell, adding up to a lethal insect killer.
The ability to use this product on tomatoes and a wide array of other vegetables offers the most economical and convenient solution to garden annoyances available on the market. The product is OMRI Listed and compliant for use in organic gardening.
Gardeners should apply Safer Tomato and Vegetable Insect Killer every 7-10 days when insects are present, or as needed, to prevent further damage. It can be applied directly to fruits and vegetables right up until the day of harvest.
An organic solution like Safer Tomato and Vegetable Insect Killer can be used on a wide variety of vegetables, such as asparagus, beans, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, cucumbers, eggplant, herbs, kale, lettuce, peppers, potatoes, squash and tomatoes.
Plants should be sprayed at the first sighting of insects and all plant surfaces should be moistened where insects are feeding or resting. Applications should be done every 7-10 days when insects are present and can be used up until harvesting produce.
