I have an extensive collection of azaleas. Unfortunately, I live in Florida in a newer development with no trees to provide shelter and two of my azaleas are planted in a garden that has a full southern exposure. Needless to say, every spring and summer my azaleas get those pesky lace bugs, all of them, even the ones in the shade. I've been used this insecticidal soap concentrate for four weeks now and I find that it's very good. I see new growth in my azaleas with no brown spots under the leaves and the older leaves have stopped falling. I am also using this soap on my Ixoras and I found they have perked up quite a bit too.
Is Insecticidal Soap Concentrate safe to use on Japanese Red Maples?
I have scale insects killing seedlings and looking for a treatment to kill scales.
We do not recommend spraying anything on the foliage of Japanese Red Maples. You should use a systemic product for scale insects on these sensitive trees. Safari is the preferred systemic to use as a soil drench but it is also quite expensive. If Safari is out of your price range, Merit or Criterion can be used as a soil drench as well.
The Natural Guard Insecticidal Soap Concentrate is considered an organic product and using on crops for organic production. We do not know if it would meet any organic certifications in Mexico or not, but you can contact the manufacturer for further information. You can reach VPG at 1-888-583-5296.

Is Insecticidal Soap Concentrate safe for honey bees?
Insecticidal Soap Concentrate is a non-selective insecticide when applied directly to them, so we do not recommend spraying on flowering plants while pollinators are present. It is recommended to treat flowering plants in the morning or evening when beneficial pollinators are not present.
