I haven't tried it in the garden, but routinely use it (spray Fantastic,
which I guess is actually a detergent rather than soap) to kill ants and
the occasional cockroach in the kitchen.  Spray followed by hot water =
instant death.  I assume it makes them no longer water repellant & they
drown/suffocate, with the hot of the water speeding up the process.
Never really thought about it, just seemed like it ought to work.....
