List your own garden tips

I just found this and thought it was interesting. I might try it.

Make Your Own Insecticide
Red pepper spray is a good general insecticide and is especially effective against caterpillars. Youíll have to use this homemade spray more often than a chemical spray, but itís much gentler on the environment. For your own safety, wear gloves when handling peppers and pepper spray.

Red Pepper Spray Concentrate:

  • 1 unpeeled onion
  • 1 unpeeled head of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 pints water
1. Chop onion and garlic and combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Simmer 20 minutes.

2. Cool and store in jars in the refrigerator for 6 weeks.

3. Strain and store in jars.

To use, dilute 1 tablespoon of concentrate with 1 pint of water. Add a little Ivory snow. Shake and spray on plant.

Thank you JMC1988 for the beautiful siggy!
