As I was walking my tater patch , There was a little vermin there ( tater bug ) I sprayed 2 weeks ago with BT which works great but the 5" of rain we had a while ago , I used my Natural Pesticide today of Neem Oil , Eucalyptus Oil , Clove Oil, and a liquid soap for the surfactant.
So what types do y'all make in your parts of your little slice of Heaven.
Recipe?

Zone 6B or 7 can't decide
fill 2 gallon pump sprayer with water add two healthy squirts of Palmolive original (Green) dish washing detergent, don't shake. Pump up and spray, kills squash bugs on contact. I also use the water palmolive mix is a base for neem and BT. Seems to work well for my neck of the woods and most but not all veggie garden pests. re-apply after rain or watering.

For flea Beatles, stink and haraquin bugs, the only thing I know that works, is store bought liquid concentrate sevin. I just don't like using sevin, even the dust. So I only use sevin if absolutely necessary.
