I am always looking for unique natural ideas to make homemade bug spray. I ran across these two ideas at http://www.buzzle.com/articles/how-to-make-homemade-bug-spray.html.
Try this recipe:
Homemade Vodka Mist
Mix together jojoba oil (50 drops), lavender oil (50 drops), eucalyptus lemon (25 drops), lemongrass (25 drops), Cajeput (25 drops) and Patchouli (25 drops). Add this mixture into the vodka and mix it well. Before applying this mixture on your skin, make sure you have covered the skin with a layer of jojoba oil.
Homemade Mint Soap Spray
Take two tablespoon full of any strong mint soap that is available to you and mix it up with a gallon of clean water. It is a very effective homemade bug spray when sprayed directly on the carpenter ants. You can also spray a little bit of this mint spray on the foliage of your plantation, it can be pretty useful to evade several other insects too. Do not spray too much of bug spray on the foliage as the soapy water may burn several plantations. This is an excellent homemade bug spray for plants.
We can all save the environment if we keep our eyes open.
