As many already know, pest control spray can be very helpful to remove harmful insects and animals from homes and gardens. The problem is that many types of sprays are harmful for pets and children, and sometimes even harm a plant it is being used on. It is therefore very important to find a pest control spray that will be both safe and effective while getting rid of your critters. This is a recipe using garlic and hot peppers that has been popular for several years to deflect many different types of insects, and even some small animals. To make it you will need:
• 2 tsp cayenne pepper
• 2 cloves garlic
• Liquid soap
• 1 qt water
Simply grind the pepper and garlic together with the water and a little soap. Strain the mixture and pour it into a spray bottle. Although the mixture must be re-applied after every rainfall, its strong contents ward off many insects. It’s a great way for keeping rabbits out of the garden as well.
Other Types of Pest Control Spray
Be careful when shopping around for a pest control spray as some of them may be counter-productive. Some sprays use orange peel concentrate or mint to ward off bugs, but some using special kinds of oil will harm plants.
