Earth RX Insect ControlGarden Insect Control

The easiest way to prevent insect damage in your garden is to discourage them from coming in the first place. A healthy garden is the best defense. When your garden has become compromised, we suggest Earl May Earth RX Houseplant and Insect Spray which is a natural-based product that controls a wide range of insects indoors and out.  Exposed adult insects quickly killed on contact after spraying. This product contains canola oil so it will kill the exposed eggs and larvae of immature insects as well. Earth Rx is a great product to use outdoors on all ornamental plants and garden crops. It can even be safely used right up to the day of harvest on many vegetable crops including tomatoes.
