Then you drink the rest, eliminating the need for a stool softener while getting a jag on!  :happy1:

What bugs are you talking about? Spray right on garden plants?

IF your asking me. It's for mosquitoes. Pump spray, it around the yard and where your going to be, like around a fire ring. In front of the house.

Ken, the guy that told me about this says his wife uses it around her flowers and bushes when she is working in them. they live in a semi wooded area and i think there is water nearby.

i'm going to try and pay attention this summer up north to see how these little annoying ankle biting flys we get up there at the cabin react to it. i do know that the skeeter beater stuff works really good on the flys, only thing is once that stuff is wet.....it doesnt work anymore. this concoction seems to work for 3-4 days on the skeeters!!!!

Only problem I have with garden insects are with Cabbage Loopers on my Cole Crops and with potato beetles. Can't seem to get rid of the little buggers. I try to find as many egg clusters as I can.

 This year I will plant potatoes in a single long row to get more clusters. With the loopers I am going to try putting a thin Remay on to keep the Butterflies from laying eggs. I really hate using an insecticide on what we eat.
