Pest Control Products I Like
Here are some pest control products I like.
Garlic Barrier is an insect repellent that will protect your plants and trees. The product repels leaf eating, fruit scarring, boring and sap-sucking insects that attack plants and trees.
The applied product becomes odorless in minutes and does not impart a taste to plants. Mix one part Garlic Barrier to 9 parts water. Cover plants throughly with a spray of this mixture. Adding liquid soap and vegetable oil will create a mixture that may better adhere to plants. Active ingredients are garlic water 99.3%, citric acid .5%, and potassium sorbate .2%.
Organocide is an insectide and fungicide for organic crop protection. It kills 25 problem insects including spider mites, aphids, thrips, whiteflies, mealybugs and scale insects. It controls major diseases including powdery mildew and blackspot.
Dilute 2 oz. of Organocide per gallon of water and keep agitated. Use a sprayer that will put out a fine spray. Cover plants with this spray.
Safer Garden Dust is an all natural way to control many garden insect pests including cabbage moths, tomato hornowrms, loopers, cutworms, and other caterpillars.
Active ingredients are bacillus thuringiensis, subsp. kutstaki solids, spores and instecticidal toxins. This product is approved by OMRI for organic use.
Can contains one pound. Thorough leaf coverage is necesary for effective control. After ingesting a treated portion of the leaf, caterpillars stop feeding within a few hours. Death occurs within a few days.
Shake-Away Rodent Repellent Granules have an odor that signals danger to all pest critters and are less messy than liquid. Patented formula won't burn plants, bushes or trees. Heavy granules won't wash away in rain - and they're naturally moist for better "cling." Granules last longer, smell stronger, and won't evaporate or freeze like liquid. Shake-Away uses the strongest force in nature to get rid of your problem animal... instinctive fear. Shake-Away contains the scent of your animals most feared predator. Easy to apply granules can be shaken right from the container to the ground. Makes no mess.

This product has much better reviews than the product at Amazon that I was recommending! Live and learn.
Silver mulch reflects sunlight onto the undersides of plants thereby increasing photosynthesis leading to more rapid growth. Also, insects are confused by the amount of sunlight being reflected up, so they are less likely to land on your plants. This mulch also offers weed and temperature control. The shiny side up prevents snails from crawling on it. 20% stronger than other typical low –density films.
Disorients and repels thrips, aphids, flea beetles, and white files.
