Bad Bugs

Not bed bugs...Bad bugs!!!

I have had my work cut out for me recently. I've battled leaf miners, tomato hornworms, cutworms...UGH!!

Here's a list of a few nasty little bad bugs:
Cabbage worm
Corn earworm
Japanese beetle
Potato beetle
Slug or Snail
Squash bugs
Tomato hornworm
White fly

Just thinking about these little guys makes my skin crawl. I've just come in from the garden, defending my harvest, and now it's time to get cleaned up.

There are many natural forms of pest control, from companion planting to homemade recipes using regular household items such as dishsoap or milk.

Before you go out and buy poison from the local garden store, try a home-remedy!
