Whoever has had a garden knows all about these pesty squash bugs! Well I can officially say I have finally found the solution. This was my first year in my garden I didn’t have ONE…..YES!!!! I don’t like to use chemicals in my garden I try to do everything all organic. So any harsh chemicals was a given no go for me.
I tried this same recipe I am going to share with you today the end of last year. I started to see the yucky squash bugs and it killed them and didn’t see any more.
This year I wanted to make sure I never got them, (once you get them they are hard to get rid of, in the past I would just pull my plants because I didn’t even want to deal with them) so I sprayed my leafs with my recipe a few times a month. I only sprayed it on plants where these little guys like to show up such as cucumbers, any squash or zucchini, and pumpkin plants. This really worked like a charm and I am SUPER DUPER excited!!!
Only 5 ingredients:
Get a spray bottle and fill it 3/4 full of warm water. Add 2 drops of dawn dish soap, 30 drops of Lemongrass Essential Oil, 40 drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil, and 40 drops of Cedarwood Essential Oil. That’s it!
I am still in shock it worked!
Take it from someone who has gone to great lengths to keep chemicals out of the garden 🙂 Give it a try and let me know how it goes for you 🙂
