DIY Bug Spray!

DIY Bug Spray!

This is a great chemical-free way to keep unwanted bugs off your prized produce.


  • 1 garlic bulb
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 tsp powdered cayenne pepper
  • 1 quart water
  • 1 tbsp liquid castile soap (i.e., Dr. Bronner’s)

Put garlic and onion in the blender, blend until liquefied. Then add 1 quart of water and 1 tsp of cayenne pepper. Cover the mixture, and let it steep for one hour.

Then, strain the mixture through a cheesecloth and add 1 tbsp castile soap. Put it all into a spray bottle, and spray the mixture on your plants to ward off bugs.

Keep the pepper spray refrigerated, and it will keep for about a week!
