eeping those pesky little plant pests like aphids,
mealybugs, spider mites, and whiteflies, out of
your garden and off of your plants can be trying. Most of us at home gardeners would rather not use
potentially dangerous pesticides.
You can buy an insecticidal soap/spray at greenhouses or garden centres where you purchases plants, trees
and shrubberies. They don't harm the environment, they
eliminate those annoying small soft-bodied insects and
aid in the removal of mold and other leaf fungi. Leaving
no residue, they are non-toxic to birds & animals, and
even better, they do not harm the beneficial insects. They
are safe to use indoors on houseplants and in the garden
on vegetables and other outdoor plants. If that is what
you choose, buying a commercial insecticidal spray/soap
will be effective.
Want to save money while saving the environment?
Become even greener in the garden by mixing up your
own insecticidal soap/spray. To keep this effective make
only enough of this recipe for what is needed for a oneday application.

homemade Insecticidal Soap/Spray Recipe
Part 1 - Combine
1 cup oil, (vegetable, peanut, corn, soybean)
1 tbsp liquid dish washing soap (No bleach or de-greaser)
Part 2 -Mix
2 tsp. of "soap" mixture
1 cup warm water

Put into a clean and empty spray bottle and use. (To be
most effective, apply insecticidal sprays/soaps thoroughly
and it should be remade, and reapplied weekly until you
attain the desired result.)
Repeat part 2 as many times as you need, or until you
run out of soap mixture. Make only what is needed for a
one-day application.
Whether you use a commercial product or a homemade one, be sure to test it out on a small part of the
plant at first, to ensure that it will not harm the plant. It's
rare, but a few plants do not like insecticidal soaps/sprays.
Spray in the evenings when it is cooler, avoid spraying
during a really hot or very bright time of day.
