Home made bug spray. 3 cloves minced garlic 2 tbsp hot pepper flakes 2 tbsp dish soap 1 cup boiling water and 4 cups cold Put garlic, pepper flakes and boiling water into a glass jar and let sit 24 hours. Strain through cheese cloth or coffee filter. Add dish soap and cold water. Put into spray bottle and spray entire plant. Works well to deter most types of moth, beetles and worms. Even rabbits. I use this for years.
