When you have garden pests eating your plants, instead of reaching for chemical insecticides you can choose to make your own organic insecticide spray – which is often just as effective.
To help control garden pests, follow any of these homemade garden insecticide recipes:
One of the most effective organic sprays for garden pests is made of garlic, onion, and cayenne pepper (and water).
Add the ingredients and water to a blender and blend until smooth. Let sit overnight to enable the oils to infuse more into the water. Then strain into a spray bottle and/or container by using a cheese-cloth or similar material. Store in the refrigerator for extra longevity.
1 peeled onion (small)
2 peeled garlic cloves
1 teaspoon powdered cayenne pepper
3 cups water
This simple organic insecticide is effective against soft bodied garden insect pests and is quick and easy to make your own.
Mix 1 quart water with 1 tablespoon liquid soap (not detergents, but liquid soap).
Or simply fill a 1 quart sprayer with water and add 1 tablespoon liquid soap. Shake well.
That’s it! Simple…
