In Today's Project Diary Video I will show you a quick and easy way to make a homemade eco-friendly insecticide. Commercial Insecticides either contain harmful chemicals that you don't really want around you edible crops or they package cheap ingredients and place a high markup due to branding. Either way, this can be easily avoided with my simple homemade recipe.

This Organic liquid spray will help kill off any Aphids, Whitefly, Greenfly, Spider mite, Leafminer and other such pests in your garden. Here are a few images of these pests just in case you're not familiar with what's attacking your Plants.

APHIDS

These and many, many other Pests can breed by the thousands and take over your entire crop within less than a week. Using my Homemade Insecticide as a contact spray will eliminate these problems within minutes. A contact Spray means it needs to be sprayed directly on the problem. Even though this Homemade Insecticide can also work as an anti-fungicide, It will not kill Pests that haven't directly been sprayed.

Another most useful post and video - thank you.

One of the problems I had this year was the Gooseberry sawfly - will this mixture get rid of them?

Thank you! I haven't had a problem with those so I've not been able to test it out. I'm sure it would work on them. It doesn't hurt to try

I'll try netting the gooseberries next year at the appropriate time. If that doesn't work I'll try some of this mixture.

Great thanks, I have used washing up liquid before but it didn't seem to last long I'll add in the oil and see how it works. Many thanks :)

You're welcome. Oil is the keep sticking ingredient but it is a contact spray so it only works if you stray the insects directly
