Today we will look into a very Powerful Recipe for the best organic pesticide which can be used as an all purpose or the universal pesticide for both treatment and prevention of pests like aphids, mealybugs, whiteflies, caterpillars and a lot of other pests and bugs in your garden.
By using Chemical Pesticides in our garden, we intentionally release harmful toxic and cancer producing substances into our environment.
Thankfully, there are a number of easily available natural substances that act as organic pesticides and are completely safe to use on our plants.
These home made natural pesticides can kill a variety of pests and bugs in our garden, either singly or in combinations. Combination of multiple substances can help you to provide a broad spectrum killing of a variety of pests like Aphids, whiteflies, mealybugs, spider mites, beetles, fleas, flies, mosquitoes, larvae, caterpillars, slugs and snails and many more.
Today, we will look into the formula or the recipe to make this All-purpose cocktail pesticide and most important its completely organic and safe to use.
Before we go into the ingredients, make sure you follow these three rules in applying this natural pesticide for your plants.
1. First and foremost, Always do a patch test on a leaf or a branch before applying all over your garden. If your leaf is getting burnt or wilting, then probably you need to reduce the concentration. And if you learn this adjustment, am sure you will have a pest free garden one day.
2. Secondly, make sure your spray even on the under sides of the leaves, and also flower buds and new growing shoots.
3. And lastly, do not apply during the sunny hours. Best time is evening and after sunset.
Now the Formula or the Recipe for this All purpose Organic Pesticide: We add 4 Ingredients to make this powerful pesticide liquid. This formula is to make 1 litre of this solution. So to 1 litre of warm water we add:
10 Drops Clove Oil – if you do not have clove oil, you can make a clove solution by taking 1 tablespoon of cloves and then crush them roughly and add this to a cup of warm water and leave it for 1 or 2 hours and then use this solution. Add a cup of this solution to water. But if you are using pure clove oil, you can use 10 drops only. The one you are seeing here I purchased online and this is approved by the ministry as a safe pesticide for organic vegetable gardening. You can use any pure clove oil brand from your store. You can find a link to purchase this at my website www.gkvk.in and also from a link in description below this video.
10 Drops Pure Neem Oil – get this from a trusted source. Even this purchase link you can find in description.
5 – 10 Drops of Eucalyptus Oil – This actually drives away bees and wasps. Use it if you do not mind driving away these pollinators or sometimes they are scary for your kids or you have a risk of anaphylaxis or allergic shock to bee or wasp stings or use them in special areas to protect your kids from bee or wasp stings.
10 drops of liquid soap like dish wash soap liquid for the coating or surfactant effect.
Its easy to remember this Formula like the Rule of 10 – that is 10 drops of each of these 4 ingredients.
Mix this well and load into your spray bottle and spray on your plants but first do a patch test and follow the rules already mentioned earlier.
i have used this same recipe and cleared almost all pests from my plants.
Initially you can use this weekly once for 3 weeks and eradicate all pests from your garden. Then as a maintenance dose or prophylactic use it in little lesser dilution atleast once every fortnight or atleast once a month.
