    Our pretty chrysanthemums had been infested by aphids and only two plants
    were salvaged. I didn’t want to use carbaryl and so this was a great tip.
    Thank you.

    also, how often do you treat the plants? every 2 weeks?

    Can I prune off the a few leaves, and spray the others

  5. Soloman1001

    Spider mites like it dry, so using soap will make it nice for them. Its
    probably more likely to be the coconut OIL that is having the effect my
    friend, not the soap, so either you knew that or you are lucky with buying
    a coconut oil blend of washing soap.
    What i dont understand is using coconut oil to wash dishes, very strange.

    Would this work if I poured my mixture into the soil to kill the root
    aphids as my leaves don’t seem to have caught it early. Thanks

    Tor Rraulovereh,
    THANK YOU for mentioning an NEGATIVE impact of NEEM , namely that it kills
    bees. Looks like Fate decided I should NOT have a Neem tree. It died when
    I re-potted it recently. I will be setting up a beehive in the near future.
    Bees are Beautiful and a real Buzzz ;-0

    I don’t know what liquid may over kill insects, so that it can’t
    reproduce??????my GOD

  11. tim master

    I wonder if you can use any soap for this. Reason being, I make my own soap.

  12. LDSPrepper

    Neem works great with this. Thanks for mentioning that. My wife uses just
    straight neem oil. I found the soapy water works better for me and that I
    haven’t had to use neem with it. But it certainly can’t hurt.

  13. Zuzia Lalka Nieduza

    No offense, but she’s clearly implying she sparys it in on the plants the
    same way you do, and she’s never heard of using soap to spray on them

  14. Edmund Kratzer

    I would like to know that as well. Please tell. 🙂

  15. Thumperlane Homestead

    I actually use Rubbing Alcohol in my mix. The container you have fill with
    water then add 3-4 Tablespoon liquid soap Then 1-2 Tablespoons of rubbing
    alcohol. Cap and shake and spray! Works awesome on aphids and even better
    on killing caterpillars (even in the cocoon) and most bugs with soft
    bodies. I need to try it on slugs!! It literally dries out the bugs. Now,
    why did you cut the tops off your onions on your garden???? We want to
    know!! 🙂

  16. Rhonda McKnight

    I’m having the exact same problem with my cukes and peppers. Tomatoes are
    right next to them and no problems with the tomatos. I do have marigolds
    planted in with the tomato plants. I was thinking I should add a marigold
    in with the cukes. I hope someone answers you.

    The silver water generated with the CollGen2® is used world wide as a
    wonderful insecticide, anti fungal, anti-fleas on animals, anti-everything
    that is bad. Collgen is used by NASA. Don’t forget to make gallons of it.

    The soapy water permeates and unlike water it completely covers the bugs
    causing them to suffocate or drown.

  19. MrNagolbud

    You should get a lady bug farm. Throw up a few of them in the garden and
    you’ll be good to go.

  20. Crochet Baby

    You just put it on a cotton ball or soft cloth and wipe it on the leaves,
    You can even put it on the soil and plant for mold or the flies. you can
    use it at full strength (I did) or you can dilute it a bit if you are not
    sure. I have been using it and it seems to be working great on the spider
    mites. It dries them out quick and kills them fast.

  21. LDSPrepper

    Please tell me about how to use the alcohol.

  22. LDSPrepper

    I look for bugs almost every day. I spray when I see them. Right now, in
    Spring, it seems every two weeks is what is needed. But in the summer,
    winter or fall almost never.

  23. isofaster

    must be nice , the only thing in gardens this far north is melt water so
    far , and it turns back to ice overnight , sigh…
