Yes it’s true but you will not find any university studies on Molasses as an insecticide but the bottom-line is that Molasses is very effective against sucking insects like Lace Bugs, Aphids and White Flies.

Outstanding for controlling soil pest insects like Fungal Gnats and Thrips, etc by causing a flash of bacterium to grow which then attacks the pest insects when they cycle in the soil.

We put Molasses in all of our MicroLife products and only use Blackstrap Molasses when we bottle in liquid form.
