Hot Pepper Wax natural insect repellent is a garden/greenhouse spray repellent and insecticide. It is proven effective against aphids, spider mites, whiteflies, cabbage loopers and beet armyworms for up to 2 weeks.
The chief active ingredient, CAPSAICIN, is an extract from cayenne pepper. It's harmless to humans - in fact, it's as edible as the sauce on barbecued Buffalo wings. For years, organic gardeners have experimented with hot-pepper home remedies against every pest, from aphids to squirrels. Hot Pepper Wax bug repellent borrows from the best of their wisdom and takes it one step further.
Using a special formula and process (both of which are patented), Hot Pepper Wax natural insect repellent blends capsaicin with a highly refined paraffin wax and other "food-grade" ingredients. The result is a spray that coats plants with a harmless, micro-thin barrier to deter pests. Some insects are done in by capsaicin, others by the wax. Hot Pepper Wax also works as an "anti-transpirant," reducing water loss and resulting stress a true benefit for new transplants.
Hot Pepper Wax natural insect repellent is perfectly safe for garden produce, too - warm water rinses it completely away. It's available in a ready-to-use (RTU), 22-oz. Spray bottle
