Homemade Insect Spray

With today being the first day of spring, I thought I would share this recipe for gardeners or houseplant keepers. I found it worked very well. Store in cool dark place, or keep refrigerated.

6 cloves garlic, crushed
1 onion, minced fine
1 tablespoon dried hot pepper
1 teaspoon pure soap (Naptha is recommended)
1 gallon hot water

Mix all ingredients and set stand for 24 hours. Strain into a spray bottle. Apply to indoor or outdoor plants. Must be reapplied after rain.
