Unhappy Will Off hurt my outdoor plants?

Hi: I accidentally sprayed off on my plants instead of the ortho insect control. Will the off mosquito repellent hurt my plants?

Many thanks, Barbara

The oil in the product may cause some leaf death, but should not hurt the plants in the long term.

Hello; Barbara

According to the information in this thread, that product and others like it may cause some harm. May be worth the time to read it.

here is whats new

We went out this morning to look at all the plants and found all the leaves curled up on the Hibiscus the rose bush is turning yellow,the Zenas look like they are on the brink of death.
I feel sorry for my wife she really loved her garden it has been one thing after another we have a relative staying with us that brought there dog that has eaten trampled her plants and now this.
One good thing she did not spray my only plant I really care about a Habenero bush .
