Here is our super easy and super-effective homemade insecticide recipe!

Gather your materials

Bucket
Neem seeds
Pepper
Chili powder
Garlic
Cinnamon

Blend with a splash of water.
Pour into your bucket and add water.

Ferment for a day or so, stirring occasionally.

Strain and spray on pest-sensitive crops. No need to spray willy-nilly. Just use it where it’s really needed, or you risk killing beneficials.

It’s best to spray in the morning or evening because the hot sun will break down the molecules, decreasing its efficacy.

We spray this often, like every day or so and have seen a huge improvement! Read our post on using grow cloth and soap sprays for more on our pest battles!
