Bug Spray from your Pantry

This spray will help control many Garden Bugs and Fungal diseases.

    • 1 Tablespoon Canola Oil
    • 1 Tablespoon Baking Soda
    • 3 Tablespoons Tabasco Sauce
    • 6 Drops of non-detergent dishwashing Soap
    • Add enough Water to make 1 quart of spray
Mix it thoroughly and agitate it often during application.
Spray it on all foliage surfaces once a week or as necessary.
Various Chemical Detergents may damage some Plants or Foliage. Look for a container that does not mention "Detergent". Non-detergent hand soaps may also be used. The purpose of the soap is to break the water's surface film and allow the other ingredients to penetrate the Insect.

If you drop an insect onto water in a cup, chances are it will float because of its natural skin oils and the surface tension of the water. 

Add 1 drop of Dishwashing Liquid in the cup. The Insect will begin to sink as the ingredients, which are made to penetrate oil and grease, take effect.
