We all look forward to having a beautiful house with a beautiful plantation too. This will help to have some fresh air within the house. Maintaining the garden or plantation is quite hard, and the most important task is to keep away the insects. In such a case having a good insecticide is the best option. These insecticides are commercially available at various shops. But these contain many harmful chemicals to the environment and the humans and the pets in the house. This insecticide spray also costs quite a lot of money which gets very expensive too. There are options to make organic insecticides at home, helping keep the insects away and save some money.
A mixture of one tablespoon of any regular dishwasher soap and water is also an effective, simple insecticide easily made at home. This simple insecticide does wonders on the common pest’s problem of the garden, such as the soft boiled ones like the whiteflies or the spider mites or aphids. This kind of insecticide enters the pest’s respiratory systems and breaks down their internal cells’ membrane. While using this insecticide, it is important to remember that it works well only if it is wet. It is advisable to spray the plants with this solution if the problem doesn’t get solved after the first use.
We can also make a mixture of one tablespoon of soap, water, and one tablespoon of any kind of oil like sunflower oil, mineral oil, olive oil, or even vegetable oil. This mixture has to be all mixed and then filled in a spray bottle. This insecticide is very helpful in damaging the protective wax coating on the insects. This kind of insecticide can be used for killing the more hard-boiled pests like fleas.
Even a combination of various readily available ingredients at home like garlic, onion, red pepper soap water, and plain water is an effective insecticide. These all should be combined to make an effective and also environmentally friendly insecticide. This kind of insecticide will last for at least two weeks.
We need to be careful while using all these insecticides as they can be sensitive to their usage.
