Natural Pest Control

A natural pepper spray to deter animals and, it is reported, two-spotted spider mites and other insects.

  1. puree two chile peppers (the hotter, the better) & some water in a blender
  2. strain out solids
  3. add water to make 1 gallon
Mix 1/4 cup of concentrate per gallon of fresh water in a sprayer. Add one tablespoon of liquid soap to help spray stick to your plants.

From Organic Gardening magazine, 2007, v. 54, No. 6
