Homemade Pest Control Spray: Garlic Oil Spray for Aphids and More

A HUGE thank you to Collette for this all-natural and inexpensive alternative to pesticides and other harmful sprays. :) Plus, this recipe (I estimate) will cost you around $0.50 or so to make. A great savings!

Garlic Oil Spray

10-15 cloves of minced garlic
2 tsp. mineral oil
600 ml water
1 tsp. liquid dish soap

Soak garlic in mineral oil for 24 hours. Strain garlic out and add 600 ml water and 1 tsp. liquid dish soap. Mix thoroughly. Spray plants with this solution. Pests affected: Aphids, spider mites, and whiteflies
