Notes from the Test Kitchen:
We have two kinds of aphids here in the desert. They are just fierce and will simply devour your plants if you don't use a bug spray. I haven't found a commercial spray that works on Utah aphids. I used this on my dwarf apricot tree and rose bushes. It not only got rid of the aphids, but it got rid of the spider mites, too. A fraction of the cost of commercial sprays. I bought a 2 gallon sprayer for this recipe.


1 gal
1 oz
pure neem oil
1-2 tsp
dish liquid (i use dawn)

Directions Step-By-Step
