In addition to insects, many gardens suffer attacks from animals which can destroy gardens and eat flowers, vegetables, and fruit crops. Organic gardeners recognize that it is usually humans who are infringing on the habitat of wild animals and not the other way around. |
Using commercial lawn and garden products is not much of a problem if proper precautions are taken, such as wearing gloves and a dust mask when applying them and following package instructions. But for the health or environmentally conscience gardener, using chemical pesticides is simply not an option.
The best way how to make natural pesticide is to use natural products that you have laying around your house. Garden pests are repelled or killed by a surprising number of safe and natural products. Let's take a look at a few natural insect repellent recipes.
Organic Garden Pest Control Recipe #1
1 head of garlic 1 tablespoon dish soap (note: do not use a dish soap that contains bleach)
2 tablespoons mineral or vegetable oil 2 cups water
Peel the garlic cloves and puree the cloves along with the oil and water. Allow to sit over night and then strain the mixture. Add the soap and mix toughly. Pour into a spray bottle and use on pest infected plants.

Organic Garden Pest Control Recipe #3
1/2 cup chopped hot peppers (the hotter the better) 2 cups water 2 tablespoons dish soap (note: do not use a dish soap that contains bleach)

Natural home pesticides are exactly like chemical pesticides in one very important way. Organic bug spray for plants will kill any bug in comes in contact with, whether a pest bug or a beneficial bug. It is always best before mixing up any natural insect repellent recipes to think hard how much damage pests are really doing to your garden.
You may be doing more damage to your plants by killing the bugs than the bugs were doing to your plants.
One of the benefits of organic pest control products is that they are designed for long term pest control, which means you will spend less time fighting off pests and more time enjoying your garden.
