I saw a bug today for a split second on top of a leaf today. It was winged with a black shell and white dots (I THINK...I only got a fleeting glimpse before it hid somewhere) and wasn't huge but not that small either. Any idea what it is?
I've decided to take some preventative measures anyway, even if this happened to be a one-time bug appearance (because really, where there's one bug...). I was going to get some neem oil, maybe make the onion and garlic blend you described, and then spray the bottom of the leaves with dish detergent (Joy, i think). Then, I'm going out to get some hanging bug repellent something or other I read about a little while back, if I can remember what it was (hot shot strip or something...not those hanging sticky things though, but they are sticky...).
How often do you think I should apply the neem oil and detergent? I'm trying to be preventative...
Thanks for the awesome thread amsterdayum! +rep
Thanks for the thread. I think that it is clear what everything does in the recipe except the milk and oil. Is it necessary to put them in there and why? Thanks.
Remedies for deer and other mammals/Rodents -
- Mix one whole egg with a quarter cup of water and mix well. Pour the mixture into a pump bottle and spray it on your plants. This deterrent will withstand light rains because the egg sticks to the leaves. Great remedy for stopping deer.
- Mix one tablespoon of liquid dish detergent with one ounce of hot sauce in one liter of water and spray directly on plants which deer have been nibbling to stop them.
-For larger volume applications of the above remedy, mix the following ingredients and proceed to pour the mixture into a pump bottle and spray it on your plants
1 cup milk
2 gallons water (8 liters)
2 whole eggs
2 Tbsp cooking oil
2 Tbsp liquid detergent
So eggs are used for their sulphur right? Why can't we just mix some sulphur with a sticking agent and apply that?
Has anyone ever tried using tree frogs in their garden?
