default Homemade insecticides

Post by boobiejuicemama on 19th January 2011, 7:22 am

Not sure where to put this but here it is, I found this great recipe and had to share how to make pesticides from garden ingredients, I know that I tend to let the good bugs get rid of the "bad" bugs, but occasionally they are outnumbered and need some help! I think I will try one on my basil as it is infested with little grasshoppers mmmm

I love her footnote "Leonie says, "Pest remedies, even natural ones, should be the last resort in your garden. By keeping an eye on what's happening in the garden you will be able to treat problems as they arise."
