At one time, The Old Farmer’s Almanac printed a recipe for a homemade pesticide. It worked extremely well, but I have lost the recipe. Can you print it again?
Certainly. In a jar, combine 1 teaspoon dishwashing liquid and 1 cup vegetable oil. Shake vigorously. In an empty spray bottle, combine 2 teaspoons of this mixture and 1 cup water. Use at ten-day intervals (or more often if needed) to rid plants of whiteflies, mites, aphids, scales, and other pests.
