Garden Gate General Purpose Pest Control Recipe
Use a hose-end sprayer (like a Miracle Grow sprayer) that mixes 2 tbsp. to the gallon. Fill container 3/4 full with vegetable oil (the oil helps the mixture stick to the plants). Add two 1 oz. bottles of liquid garlic seasoning, 2 tbsp. Tabasco or other hot pepper sauce, and 3 to 4 good squirts of Joy or Ivory or other mild liquid soap (do not use degreasing soaps). Test spray on your hand-you will feel the oil, but the mixture should barely feel soapy. Spray early in the morning, coating both sides of leaves. Do not use on fuzzy-leafed plants. Spray only when you are having a problem. Spray once every seven to ten days until pest problem is under control.
