A home made bug repellant recipe for you to try

Post  Khrishna on 6/23/2011, 8:59 pm

As you can see, bugs are the topic of the day for me Smile

I found this "recipe" on a blog I read: http://theharriedhomemakerpreps.blogspot.com/2011/06/homemade-bug-repellent-for-your-garden.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+TheHarriedHomemakerPreps+%28The+Harried+Homemaker+Preps%29

I made it with minced garlic from a jar and vegetable oil. I had good luck with it against cabbage worms, but not so much with grasshoppers. Just thought I would share in case anyone else wants to try it.

Thanks. I had a recipe similar to this that I used several years ago. It worked like a charm on aphids (which my tomatoes were infested with). Knock on wood, I haven't had any real bug issues yet. But then again, my garden is only about 3 weeks along. Smile
