Does anybody have any ideas for organically getting bugs off the plants? It seems we have two people with bad results with soap now.
Soaps are chemicals and destroy some very delicate plants like herbs. To fend off bugs and aphids on my plants, I use pepper spray. You have to spray the pants daily though and use some protective gear as this may also hurt you if your skin is exposed too much. For the pepper spray solution, just mix pepper powder and water, mix thoroughly until all powder are dissolved. If its too hot, add more water.
This solution will keep off leaf and fruit eaters. The pests won't be killed but definitely they will keep off the leaves and the fruits.
