Natural bug repellent for gardens
  • one head of garlic, chopped up (big pieces are fine)
  • one onion, chopped (again they don't have to be small pieces)
  • one tablespoon cayenne pepper
  • three quarts water
  1. Put all ingredients into a pot on the stove and simmer for about 30 minutes, or until you have just a quart of liquid left.
  2. Strain into a jar or other storage device usingĀ  cheesecloth or other thin material.
  3. To use, take about 1 Tbsp mixture and pour into a spray bottle with about 2 cups of water and a couple drops of a natural liquid soap (helps it stick).
  4. Spray the plants including the underside of the leaves. Reapply after a hard rain.
