Doktor Doom® Spider Mite Knock Out® is a .20% pyrethrin formula. This formula is 19 times stronger in active ingredient pyrethrin than any soap based insecticides and 10 times stronger than any formulations that contain pyrethrin & piperoynl Butoxide. Piperoynl Butoxide is a synergist which enhances the killing power of pyrethrin and it is not approved for organic gardening. Pyrethrin is approved for organic gardening with some restrictions - refer to OMRI (Organic Material Review Institute), for more information.
Unlike soap based products which need to be applied liberally to the plant in order to drown the insects, Doktor Doom® Spider Mite Knock Out® kills the pests on contact with just a light misting on the foliage.

Always apply in the dark-late at night or early in the morning — NEVER in direct sunlight or with HID lights on. Water plants before application.
Be careful to remove any webbing that you see by hand prior to treatment — webs work as an umbrella and prevent sprays from getting through to the plant.
Spray the underside of the foliage from a distance of 2-3 feet away from the plant. Spider Mite Knockout is equipped with a special spray valve that sprays upside down.
Spray with short bursts 1-2 seconds at a time — a light mist is all that is required. Do NOT soak foliage.
