Hot Pepper Wax natural insect repellent is a garden/greenhouse spray repellent and insecticide. It is proven effective against aphids, spider mites, whiteflies and other soft body insects for up to 2 weeks.
The chief active ingredient, CAPSAICIN, is an extract from cayenne pepper. 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.
