Hot Pepper Wax Insect Repellent

Hot Pepper Wax Insect Repellent
Hot Pepper Wax Insect Repellent

A liquid concentrate containing chlorinated refined wax (FDA approved for edibles), hot pepper extract, kelp, eucalyptus extract, scent made from extracts of garlic, onion, parsley, basil, thyme, coriander, cumin, mustard, orange, and lemon.

How it works
The main ingredient is capsaicin, an extract from cayenne pepper. Hot pepper wax is absorbed into the nervous systems of soft-bodied insects (aphids, thrips, mites, white flies, and so on). Initially this is apparent as an increase in nervous system activity; insects begin to move more rapidly. This action will kill some bugs on contact. Generally, it takes 24-48 hrs to be effective.

General usage
Use on roses, orchids, cut flowers, house plants, orchards, and field crops.

Directions for use
Mix 8 tablespoons (4 oz) of hot pepper wax with 1 gallon of water. Once the infestation is under control, reduce the amount of hot pepper wax to 4 tablespoons (2 oz). In severe infestations, it may be necessary to repeat the application in 2-3 days. For complete details, see manufacturer's instructions on label.

Hot pepper wax does not discriminate between pests and beneficial insects. Timing is important when using this product.
