I like that one. First time I've heard of it. One you've read about or someone told you?

Sounds like a good book I would read. Thanks Sunny.

3Dogcrew- here's a nifty trick for ridding pests underground like worms and bugs. Cut a small potato in half and bury (just under the soil) near your plant. In a few days dig it up to see "what you've caught". Then throw the potato, bugs and all away.
The cut potato draws them and they feast on it instead of your plants.

After reading some recipes on line, I may have to change mine a little. All say to use organic soap, witch I do. But they all also have garlic in them. So I may try this. Also recommend companion gardening.

That sounds like a good recipe. I'm hoping my chickens will find all the bad bugs tasty and leave the nice ones alone! emoticon

MOSIERMEISTER post in the chatting in the garden forum got me to thinking. The bad bug's will be here soon. emoticon
So what's your best home remedies for these unwanted friends?

One of my favorites is: Mix in blender

1. dried hot peppers (any works)
2. dish soap
3. tsp salt
4. tbsp baking soda
5. 1 gal water
blend top 4 together with a little water. Than add rest of water heat to a boil over stove. Let steep for a few hours. Strain in to a spray bottle.

This work good on tomato plants. If you spray early. If the worms get their first, this will not work.
