Captain Jack's Deadbug Brew contains Spinosad "spin-oh-sid". Spinosad is derived from a naturally occurring soil dwelling bacterium that was collected from an abandoned rum distillery on a Caribbean island in 1982. This unique bacterium was defined as a new species when it was discovered and it has never been found in nature anywhere else in the world. Since being discovered, Spinosad has become a pesticide used by agriculture world-wide in the production of organic produce. Today, Spinosad is available to the homeowner in Captain Jack's Deadbug Brew.
Kills all sorts of pests such as thrips, spider mites, leaf feeding beetles, and other insects. This product does not significantly impact predatory beneficial insects like spiders.
