This natural, non-chemical formula effectively repels insects and animals away from your garden, shrubs, and trees without harmful chemicals. Spray on the heat with this capsaicin-based repellent. Hot Pepper Wax is made from a concentrate of Cayenne peppers, assorted repelling herbs, and food-grade paraffin wax. Simply mix with water and spray. The patented formula stays on the plant for up to three weeks. This natural wax also offers protection to plants from hot, dry, and windy conditions. Food plants do not absorb the heat of the pepper and the wax washes off easily with warm water.
- Will help keep aphids, spider mites, thrips, whitefly, lace bugs, leafhoppers, and many other pests away from your fruit and vegetable crops.
- Spray every surface of the plant, especially the undersides of leaves where insects hide. After spraying, allow about 12 hours for the micro-thin liquified wax to set. As it sets, the wax loses its hazy white color and becomes transparent.
