Soap sprays

In this Feb. 13, 2012 photo, insecticidal soap is sprayed on an orchid plant in order to kill scale insects in New Paltz, N.Y.

In these environmentally conscious times, they are valued for biodegrading quickly and being relatively nontoxic. Pests on plants don't always warrant spraying, but when they do, soap may do the trick. (AP Photo/Lee Reich)
