LIVE on Fox23-Get rid of those Garden Pests-in a nice way.

This morning, I will be LIVE on Fox23’s “Great Day, Green Country” showing how to make non-toxic pest deterrent’s for the garden, including:

Non-Toxic Homemade Insecticide Spray,
Non-Toxic Bunny and Critter Deterrent,
Non-Toxic Ant and Gnat Deterrent.

You now will get to see on Hi-Def just how sweaty a little girl can get.

Here are all of the recipes to rid your garden of pests-the Non-Toxic way!  These recipes are so simple, I just know you’re going to love them.


The first is a Non-Toxic Insecticide Spray for the Garden-which is cheap and easy to make.


Here’s all that you’ll need to make your very own Non-Toxic Insecticide Spray:

3 C Warm Water
6-8 Cloves Garlic, Peeled
1 TBS Cayenne Pepper
1/2 Medium Onion, quartered
1/2 tsp Liquid Castille Soap, fragrance free

Throw all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Transfer to a spray bottle and lightly mist the offended plants.


Next, is my Non-Toxic Ant and Gnat Remover (basically, this is made for small, spastic bugs that evade your every move).


Here’s all that you’ll need to make your very own Non-Toxic Ant & Gnat Remover:
1 tsp Dish Soap (choose something very mild-I prefer Dawn or Melaleuca’s Lemon Bright)
3 C Water

Using a funnel, add both ingredients to your spray bottle. Shake, spray and smile as the ants go slip-sliding off of your precious leaves.


Make your very own Bunny Deterrent by filling up a shaker canister with Cayenne pepper. Sprinkle around the edge of your garden, flower beds, etc. The bunnies don’t like to sniff it up, so they run off for greener pastures.


Use Garlic Salt in a shaker canister to deter almost any critter. Squirrels hate the smell, slugs can’t stand it and dogs quit relieving themselves on your squash plants when you carefully sprinkle this around.

*NOTE-Do not sprinkle on the leaves of the plant. This will actually kill them. Not that I’ve ever done that….nope.
