Those pretty little white cabbage moths are flitting through my garden now, which means holes in plants. I reluctantly dust the plants with a pesticide and that takes care of them for awhile. It's the only insecticide I use. I asked readers how they control bugs. Here are a few answers:
2. Natural repellent made from dawn dish soap, water, crushed garlic cloves, red pepper. Works great and doesn't kill the bees!
3. Squish them when I see them on my plants.
4. Cedar mulch
5. Dust them
6. Make a tea out of tomato leaves and stems by soaking them in a bucket of water for a day or two. Aphids and all sorts of other bugs hate it when you spray it on them.
Thanks for the ideas!
