Do you know a good homemade organic pest control spray?

Organic Insect Control

You can make your own organic pest control spray using simple household ingredients. Before you use one of these sprays, test it twenty four hours beforehand on just a few leaves of the infected plant. If the leaves look wilted or discolored the next day, you may not want to use the spray on that particular plant. With that in mind, here are several popular organic insect control spray recipes:

* Into a 1 quart spray bottle, put 1 drop lemon dish soap, 1 capful mint mouthwash and water. Spray any infested leaves thoroughly in the early morning or late evening hours.

* Run tobacco, onion skins and garlic cloves through your blender. Pour the mixture into a gallon jar and let it age for 1 to 2 days. This recipe may be stinky, but it works fairly well.
