Natural Pest Control Article

I can't take the credit for this wonderful article, but I have used the information in it with great success, so I wanted to share it with you. The Garlic Chile Insecticidal Soap Spray recipe is my favorite.

I hope you enjoy it!

You're welcome! This weekend I'm going to try and make time to post about natural insect (particularly mosquitos) repellents. There are lots of plants they dislike and many different sprays/oils/etc. you can try, and even make yourself inexpensively. Various concoctions seem to work differently on different people, but my favorite repellent at the moment is yarrow tincture, with or without a few added essential oils! More later....
