- 1/2 Cup of Hot peppers
- 4 Cloves of Garlic
- 3 Cups of Water
- Mix ingredients in a blender.
- Strain (use old stockings for extra credit!) and place in sprayer.
- Spray directly onto the bugs. It’s best to spray in the morning or evening, when it’s coolest.
- Wipe bugs off with a cloth.
If this seems too messy, or smelly, keep it simple and make a sudsy solution from biodegradable dish wash detergent and water. This you can spray on the entire plant. Now we’re hoping we have a happy houseplant!
