Convenient 22 oz Ready-to-Use Spray
Hot Pepper Wax Natural Insect Repellent
Hot Pepper Wax 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 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 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, and in a more concentrated form for larger applications.
Hot Pepper Wax Insect Repellent is patented in the U.S. and Canada. HPW is EPA-registered, as is its production location in Greenville, Pennsylvania.
