This organic spray helps control mites, aphids, leaf spot and mildew, too!. It combines three things bugs and fungi don’t like: garlic, mineral oil, and soap.

Garlic Oil Insect Spray:
Soak 4 T minced garlic in 2 T mineral oil overnight. Strain out the garlic, add 2 cups of water and 1 t liquid organic dish soap. Mix well. Pour the liquid into a spray bottle and spray plants.


Thank you for your bug-killing spray recipe and all your help. You're the best.


Thank you Chigiy and Markene for the recipe. I will try it on my unhappy squash.


You are welcome Jacqueline,
I just found what looks like mites in my beautiful azalea garden. I am bummed. Time to start hacking back and spraying:(
