Safe Bug Killer for Plants

Are Aphids and other critters eating your veggies and ornamental plants? Spray them with a dose of this safe spray and they will be gone!

This recipe makes 1 gallon of safe spray. I use a 2-gallon hand pump sprayer and keep it handy in my greenhouse. (double the recipe if you want to totally fill this size sprayer.)

1 Tablespoon Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Liquid Dish Soap
1 Gallon of Water

Mix all ingredients in the sprayer, stir and saturate infected plants. For aphids, you may need to spray a second time after a day or so. Aphids tend to lay eggs and you will need to get rid of the hatch of eggs.  The fruit or herbs are safe to eat even the first day you spray. Of course, rinse before using...soap is not so good to taste. 😏
