Bug Tip Tuesday – DIY Bug Spray

You can make your own organic bug spray from kitchen leftovers! Save your onion skins, peels and ends then refrigerate in an empty margarine-sized tub or ziplock bag until the container is full. onion-04
Once you have enough, place the onion pieces in a pail and fill with warm water. Soak for a few days, up to a week. You can keep this on the patio in the sun to steep but this is optional. After one week, strain the onion bits out and store the onion water in spray bottles.
Just spray both house and garden plants with the water to fight aphids and pests.
