How To Make Your Own Insecticide For The Garden

When garden pests are eating your plants, instead of reaching for chemical insecticides you might consider making your own organic insecticide spray – which may be just as effective…

Here are a few do-it-yourself recipes, and I’m curious to hear about yours:



An effective organic spray for garden pests is made of garlic, onion, and cayenne pepper (and water).

Add the ingredients and water to a blender and blend until smooth. Let sit overnight to enable the oils to infuse more into the water. Then strain into a spray bottle and/or container by using a cheese-cloth or similar material. Store in the refrigerator for extra longevity.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 peeled onion (small)
2 peeled garlic cloves
1 teaspoon powdered cayenne pepper
3 cups water



This simple organic insecticide is effective against soft bodied garden insect pests and is quick and easy to make your own.

Mix 1 quart water with 1 tablespoon liquid soap (not detergents, but liquid soap).

Or simply fill a 1 quart sprayer with water and add 1 tablespoon liquid soap. Shake well.

That’s it! Simple…

Have any of you had success with a homemade insecticide spray for your garden vegetables?
