We have been organic gardeners for years. Organic pest control can be hard to find so we decided to start making our own! We have two recipes here that both work great. The only difference is that some of the ingredients can be changed depending on what you have one hand.

If for some reason you can’t find peppermint castile soap just use a few drops of peppermint essential oil in your castile soap. Pests hate peppermint!

    I’m going to have to give this recipe a try. I have aphids on my kale and the other day I blasted them off with the hose which usually works really well, but I must have missed a few because they are back. Thanks for sharing at the Tuesday Garden Party.

      Oh no fun! Best of luck! We’ve never had it fail us

  2. I’m going to try this out-this is the first year I’ve had aphids on my squash plants and I wasn’t sure what to do about it. Thank you!
