I was tickled this morning as hubby left for work.
As I inspected my garden for squash bug eggs and baby squash bugs,
I told him that I thought that my natural bug spray had diminished the number of babies and eggs.
I told him that I planned to spray again on Wednesday.
He commented, "Well, either your killing them, or you are seasoning their food!"
The bug spray is a mix of onion juice, garlic juice, cayenne, soap, oil, and baking soda.
It is a little smelly to make, but I like that it is natural and I hope to save my many pumpkins and squash this year. It also seemed to work on the bugs on my green beans.
Only time will tell if it is a true success, but the first attempt looked promising.
Curious about the recipe?
I found it here.
