Organic Homemade Pesticide: Insects like Cricket, Spiders, Snail, Aphids and others can cause serious damage to your garden and invite several diseases.

Personally, I don't recommend chemical pesticides to get rid of these as they can make fruits and vegetables unsafe for consumption plus they are not safe for environment. However, there are many homemade remedies for you to stop these pests.

  • Mix the paste into 1 liter of warm water.

  • Pour the solution into a container and leave it for 24 hours in a warm spot. 

  • Filter the solution through a strainer to remove solid particles.

  • That's it, filtered solution is your pesticide.

  • Pour your pesticide into a squirt bottle and spray on the affected plants.
