PostSubject: Organic Natural Bug Spray Recipes   Tue Jul 21, 2009 4:29 pm

There is a big push to greener living, stripping off the chemicals and toxins of today's society and have a more natural homemade life. If you are wanting to go green but don't want to have to deal with pesky bugs that sting and bite, you'll want to learn some of these all natural and organic ways to rid your home and garden of bugs without toxins and chemicals. These are simple recipes usually only needing simple kitchen items that everyone should keep stocked. These can all be sprayed directly onto the plant without harm to the plant, to pets and children, or any other living creature (other than the bug).

Aphid Spray
2 Tablespoons liquid Ivory soap
1 gallon water

Mix thoroughly and put into a landscape sprayer or carefully pour into a spray bottle to use around plants with an aphid infestation problem.

Slug Spray
6 Tablespoons chopped garlic
2 Teaspoons liquid paraffin
1 pint water
cup liquid Ivory soap

Have the first two ingredients soaking for a day, and then add to the mixture the water and soap. Strain this and put into a landscape sprayer or a spray bottle to use.

Fruit Tree Spray
5 Pounds White flour
1 Pint buttermilk
25 gallons water

Mix all the ingredients and then strain. The strained liquid is what you'll use in the sprayer or spray bottle to mist onto the fruit trees to stave off bugs.

All Purpose Spray
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 Tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 Quart water
1 Tablespoon liquid Ivory soap

Mix all of the first four ingredients and let sit for one hour. Then add the liquid Ivory soap right before you are going to use it in the sprayer. This is good for a wide variety of bugs.

All Purpose Hot Pepper Mix Spray
1 cup ground hot pepper
1 quart water
1 Tablespoons liquid Ivory soap

Mix all three of the ingredients and let steep for a day. Strain and pour liquid into a sprayer or a spray bottle before using.

Thanks for the are two things that I also do/use:

For slugs in the garden...I use tin foil pie plates filled with any type of cheap beer...they crawl in it, and drown...(I think they get drunk personally).

I use Avon Skin So Soft as a bug skin repellent.
