Eco tips::: Homemade Remedies for Insects and Disease Control on Plants

I'm all about tips, I enjoy using and learning new tips and especially if they are Eco friendly. I found a huge list of remedies that We all can make at home to treat insects and diseases on plants. This time I'm going to share them with you little by little, so this post would not get so long and boring, ...he he:


Bululu's garden

Home-made soap solution for insect control on plants:

You'll need:
Baby shampoo
Water
Empty gallon bottle (you can reuse the empty gallon of milk)
Empty Spray Bottle

Instructions:

Mix 2 tablespoon of baby shampoo in 1 gallon of water.

Water the plants the day before the soap spray application to prevent damage. Test the spray solution on a small area of the plant. Wait 2-3 days and check for any damage. reduce potential injury by rising plant with fresh water a few hours after the soap spray application.

Note: Use a maximum of 6 tbsp. per gallon on water. Through coverage of the pest is necessary. Avoid using soaps on plants with hairy leaves or with very thin waxy coverings on the leaves.

I hope you can put in good use this tip for your own garden.

This tip reminds me of the time when I wanted to test this out on my Mother's garden and killed her flowers. I had no clue how much shampoo to add so I added like a cup to a gallon!!

So, folks, follow Bululu's recipe. You may kill more than just the pests in your garden if you are not careful with the proportions!

That is an awesome tip. I'm going to try that on my garden. Funny, my blog post from today was about my vegetable garden :)

Hi, I’m Sarahgreen.. new to this space. Can someone help me finda site that offers natural/ eco-friendly baby products?

I’ve found a few sites but not all their products are organic or eco-friendly, and it’s hard to find a site that has cute stuff.
