How to Get Rid of Aphids Without Using Pesticide
How to Make an All-Natural Aphid Repellent
When I see an entire plant overrun by aphids, I figure as long as they stay on one plant, they can have it. That's how I almost lost my entire pot of chives. Then one weekend, my friend Annie mentioned an all-natural repellent she makes when she sees them in her garden. She gave me the recipe, and it worked overnight! Every black aphid on my chives disappeared, and I counted significantly lower numbers of the little insects on my spinach crop. Read on to see how to make it yourself!
What You'll Need:
- 2 drops of dishwashing detergent
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cooking oil (any kind)
- 1 teaspoon epsom salt
- 1 24 oz. spray bottle
Put all of the ingredients in a 24 oz. spray bottle. Fill up the rest of the bottle with water and spray the solution on your plants. It works like a dream!
