Wow! We Can Make Organic Bug Killer At Home
Make organic bug killer? Does this strike you as odd? Why do people choose to deliberately discharge harmful compounds into the environment in order to kill other living things? While this may appear to be a strange thought, we do it every day when we use pesticides as natural bug killers to eliminate living organisms that we view to be pests. Unfortunately, pest control by spraying chemicals on a large scale has a severe influence on beneficial insects and arachnids. When you kill the bugs you don’t like, you’re also likely to harm bees, carnivorous praying mantis, butterflies visiting flowers, and wasp-eating beneficial spiders.
Does The Sprayed Pesticide Long Lasting?
When you put pesticide on something, it doesn’t suddenly vanish. It may end up in the environment and into the water system after killing everything you planned to kill (along with a few creatures you didn’t intend to kill). Fish and other innocent bystanders may be killed by the pesticide sprayed. Of course, sprinkling poison in your flower or vegetable garden isn’t a good idea for you! Working in your garden on a regular basis exposes you to pesticides, which can be harmful to your health. If you spray poison on your fruits and vegetables, they will naturally become tainted with poison.
What’s The Other Way To Keep Our Garden or Plants Healthy?
Pesticides are clearly unwelcome everywhere, but what can you do to protect your flowers, fruits, and vegetables from predatory pests? We’ll provide you ten great ideas for natural pest deterrents and DIY organic bug killer that you may produce at home in this article. Continue reading to find out more.
Create A Pesticide Using Epsom Salts
Epsom salts can be applied as a liquid spray or as a dry powder. It can be used in the garden for a variety of purposes. It functions as a pest deterrent while also providing your plants with a healthy dosage of magnesium. Combine the following items to make a spray:
- Epsom salts – one cup
- Water – five gallons
Decant the mixture into a spray bottle after the salts have completely dissolved in the water and spray widely throughout your garden. Beetles and slugs should be kept at bay with this organic bug killer. Keep your mixture, like all-natural products, in a cold, dark, and dry area between usage. Epsom salts can also be sprinkled about your yard (especially at the base of your plants). This will keep pests from creeping up the stems of your plants from the ground. To preserve your plants and promote their absorption of minerals from the soil such as sulfur, phosphorus, and nitrogen, reapply the salts once a week.
Use A Diatomaceous Earth
Diatomaceous earth for food is a fine white powder and it could be an organic bug killer. It’s made comprised of the ground-up petrified remnants of extremely small aquatic creatures. These organisms have a lot of silica in their skeletons, which is a cylinder-shaped material. Insects, parasites, and other pests can be killed by the razor-sharp edges of these small cylinders.
Make A Garlic Spray
Another organic pest control or organic bug killer option is to use herbs that are readily available at home. Garlic contains a wide range of natural therapeutic qualities. Antifungal, antiviral, and antibacterial properties are all present. It’s also a fantastic bug deterrent! It’s simple to manufacture an organic bug spray based on garlic.
To produce your own house bug spray, combine the following ingredients:
- 5 garlic bulbs, smashed
- 1 gallon of water
- Allow this combination to sit and infuse for at least six hours to make a natural mosquito repellent for your home.
Strain the mixture through a tea strainer or cheesecloth after adding one teaspoon of dish soap. Fill a one-gallon jug halfway with soapy water and halfway with fresh water. To protect your fruits, vegetables, and flowers against predatory insects, pour the mixture into a spray bottle as needed. It’s important to remember that this mixture doesn’t distinguish between positive and negative insects.
