Whether you take care of a small number of plants or instead manage a real vegetable garden, nothing is more unpleasant than seeing your plants suffering from attacks by harmful insects such as cochineals and aphids.
These insects can be the cause of virus transmission, subtraction of vital sap, and the release of toxic substances that compromise the health of the plant, and therefore must be eliminated at the first signs of their appearance.
Using an ecological insecticide such as this garlic and alcohol solution will prove useful to them and healthy for you and the environment. Here's how to prepare it.
An ecological insecticide based on garlic --- here's how to prepare it!
What you need to prepare 1 quart (one liter) of this effective ecological insecticide is:
- 2 1/4 cups (500 ml) of water
- 6 garlic cloves
- 2 1/4 cups (500 ml) of ethanol alcohol (at 70% or 90%)
- A drop of ecological dish detergent (as an alternative to the grated solid soap flakes)
The procedure is very simple just take the garlic cloves and put them in the alcohol to soak for 24 hours. Then add the water and soap to dilute the solution, pour it into a container with a spray diffuser and you're done. Remember to shake the solution before each use and then store the container in a dry place away from heat sources; in this way, it can be used for several months.
Use it to protect your plants from aphids, cochineals, and other insects of this type by spraying it on the whole plant, leaves, and stem, without fear of damaging the plants in any way.
