The "secret" to the success of this versatile product is the organic surfactant (which the manufacturer markets as a stand-alone product under the name IFC) that uses nano and micelle technologies to greatly increase its overall effectiveness. This surfactant (aka insecticidal soap) is able to penetrate and carry material deep into plant and pest tissue where it has the best chance for ultimate pest control. IFC has insecticidal properties on its own, but when combined with the garlic oil in Mosquito Down, its efficacy rises exponentially.
