Bug Spray from your Pantry

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

Recipe:
    • 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.

Experiment:
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.
