Insecticidal soaps have been a popular and effective way to get rid of insect pests for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. BONIDE Insecticidal SUPER Soap ups the soap game tremendously by adding some Spinosad to the mix. Spinosad is a product of a naturally-occurring soil bacterium that attacks an insect's nervous system and causes paralysis and death - add that to the suffocant/desiccant qualities in traditional soaps and you have a real killer combination in this SUPER Soap.
