    Hello ! Is this affected to the snail infestations in Rice Fields? Please
    answer it as soon as possible. I need it to my thesis

    Spider mites like it dry, so using soap will make it nice for them. Its
    probably more likely to be the coconut OIL that is having the effect my
    friend, not the soap, so either you knew that or you are lucky with buying
    a coconut oil blend of washing soap.
    What i dont understand is using coconut oil to wash dishes, very strange. ;-)

    it worked for me in last two weeks .Thanks

  5. Gary Torok says:

    What about spider the mites as you mention in the title above? All you
    talked about was the aphids.

    LDS, do you have a suggestion for the grasshoppers. I have just about given
    up on gardening. This is the 3rd year that my garden has been stripped by
    the middle of July. I seems the more I water the quicker they strip
    everything. Even the soap spray does not slow them down.

    I have always done this and it works …. I also spray my fruit trees with
    vinegar and water and it is a good recipe…. so I share …

    Can I prune off the a few leaves, and spray the others

  9. beanzntoast says:

    Would this work if I poured my mixture into the soil to kill the root
    aphids as my leaves don’t seem to have caught it early. Thanks 

  10. Andrew Holz says:

    also, how often do you treat the plants? every 2 weeks?

    Tor Rraulovereh,
    THANK YOU for mentioning an NEGATIVE impact of NEEM , namely that it kills
    bees. Looks like Fate decided I should NOT have a Neem tree. It died when
    I re-potted it recently. I will be setting up a beehive in the near future.
    Bees are Beautiful and a real Buzzz ;-0

    I don’t know what liquid may over kill insects, so that it can’t
    reproduce??????my GOD

    Our pretty chrysanthemums had been infested by aphids and only two plants
    were salvaged. I didn’t want to use carbaryl and so this was a great tip.
    Thank you.

    Please tell me about how to use the alcohol.

  16. tim master says:

    I wonder if you can use any soap for this. Reason being, I make my own soap.

  17. MrNagolbud says:

    You should get a lady bug farm. Throw up a few of them in the garden and
    you’ll be good to go.

  18. Edmund Kratzer says:

    I would like to know that as well. Please tell. :)

  19. Thumperlane Homestead says:

    I actually use Rubbing Alcohol in my mix. The container you have fill with
    water then add 3-4 Tablespoon liquid soap Then 1-2 Tablespoons of rubbing
    alcohol. Cap and shake and spray! Works awesome on aphids and even better
    on killing caterpillars (even in the cocoon) and most bugs with soft
    bodies. I need to try it on slugs!! It literally dries out the bugs. Now,
    why did you cut the tops off your onions on your garden???? We want to
    know!! :-)

  20. Zuzia Lalka Nieduza says:

    No offense, but she’s clearly implying she sparys it in on the plants the
    same way you do, and she’s never heard of using soap to spray on them

  21. LDSPrepper says:

    Neem works great with this. Thanks for mentioning that. My wife uses just
    straight neem oil. I found the soapy water works better for me and that I
    haven’t had to use neem with it. But it certainly can’t hurt.

  22. Anthony Browning says:

    will this be effective to use on fire ants, even if poured down their mound?

  23. isofaster says:

    must be nice , the only thing in gardens this far north is melt water so
    far , and it turns back to ice overnight , sigh…

  24. Crochet Baby says:

    You just put it on a cotton ball or soft cloth and wipe it on the leaves,
    You can even put it on the soil and plant for mold or the flies. you can
    use it at full strength (I did) or you can dilute it a bit if you are not
    sure. I have been using it and it seems to be working great on the spider
    mites. It dries them out quick and kills them fast.

  25. LDSPrepper says:

    I look for bugs almost every day. I spray when I see them. Right now, in
    Spring, it seems every two weeks is what is needed. But in the summer,
    winter or fall almost never.
