You may wonder, how do I choose which recipe to make? First, check all the recipes below and see which ones you already have all the ingredients for. Pick whichever one of those that you feel you’d like to make up. Try that homemade bug spray for about 2 weeks, and if you’re not seeing the results you want, make up a different spray. Different bugs respond to different ingredients and different concentrations, so you may have to try a few to find the best homemade bug spray for your garden!
