Murhpy's Oil Soap(2 posts)
I read somewhere on here that Murphy's Oil Soap is a Contact killer. Having wood floors, I'm wondering, does it kill eggs and babies? -Some piece of mind until the PCO comes Monday.
In the agricultural area of pest control we use organic and non organic horticultural oils and soaps to kill many unwanted over wintering pests and pests we have throughout the season as well. Summer oils and Dormant oils are similar in their own way. Murphy's oil Soap I would think should be applied undiluted and not mixed with water or very little (this is theory). I would then leave it to completely dry and applying it rather thick to thoroughly cover and suffocate the bugs. The act of actually mopping or dumping/spraying soap all over the floor without really seeing or knowing what is their in an actual infestation I would think should have negative consequences in the long run. By disturbing the areas of harborage and not thoroughly killing on site immediatly I would think wouldn't be wise. Its kinda like roach's if ya think about it, if ya spray they run, if you bait or attack directly with the correct product you get results. Just my opinion, thought this was in interesting topic.
