Insect Pest Control
Q.

insecticidal-soap

Zone Brampton, Ontario, Canada | Anonymous added on August 5, 2017 | Answered

First, apparently there are no (absolutely none)gardening stores that carry any insecticidal-soap..? (I've checked 5 major stores). Second, would your 'home made' insecticidal-soap work on Chinch bugs in my lawn? You do mention several insects but did not mention Chinch bugs. Best time to apply [morning, night?) Thanks, Larry
