Last year, y’all taught me about dishsoap spray. And I wanted to pass the information along to anyone who might not be using it.
Last year I had trouble with Mexican beetles eating my green bean plants. While my green bean plants did a lovely job of producing green beans, I was not too fond of the little holes left in the leaves by said pests.
I needed a solution to this problem. And dishsoap spray was the answer!
To make: Fill the bottle up with water, then add a squirt full of dishsoap.
I spray it on the leaves of my pepper plants every so often. And so far so good…not too many holes.
(And be sure to wash any lettuce or produce well…to avoid any bites of dishsoap. blech.)
Here’s to a garden filled with Whole (not hole) Leaves!
Have any “how to rid of garden pests” tips or tricks to share?!? We’d love to learn from you!
