    I just fill a plastic lid with beer and sink to ground level? and all the slugs drop in and party till they drop. And it is one hell of a hangover as they never wake up after it.

    I so need that advice about squash bugs. My beautiful garden is destroyed each year by those vile critters!? I pick them off, squish them — even tried Sevin dust (hated using it) — I will try diatemaceous (sp) earth and dawn dish liquid this year. Thank you.

  • mentalpatientMp 6 years ago

    Thank you very much for the reply! I will go out and? purchase some today.

    I use approximately 2 tablespoons of blue original dawn detergent to one liter of water. If you watch any of the reports of conservists using detergents to wash oil covered wild birds they always use the blue original dawn detergent. It is biodegradable and does not harm the environment,? but squash bugs hate it. I have been using it for 2 years now and have found no problems with the growing of my crops.

    how much dishsoap per liter do you use? for the squash beetles?

  • mammal46 6 years ago

    My son-in-law is a master brewer at a micro brew and he says that? they use diatomaceous earth as a filter for something…Anyway he says that you need to use a mask because of the fact if DM ends up in your lungs it can shard them from the inside and suffocate you. So it’s not completely harmless to ppl. Also not good to be around sniffing dogs or cats.

    Also consider companion planting. Marigolds with potatoes for instance repell potato bugs, radishes with cucumbers repel cucumber beetles… ? It’s not a perfect solution but it does reduce the need for pesticides.

  • 9aspengold5 6 years ago

    I use a spray? bottle with dishwashing soap (preferably Dawn original) and water for Squash beetles. They hate it and are killed almost immediatley.

  • woodlandcammo27 6 years ago

    A saucer with beer in will work for snails and slugs. Just put the container at ground level. They get? so drunk they fall in lol

  • cambria551 6 years ago

    there organic chemicals?

  • yome255913 6 years ago

    I don’t think its fair that you consider using chemicals as ‘organic’ gardening. well done video, but, i dont? agree with using chemicals.

  • plucknpick 6 years ago

    To be really truthful on Organic Methodology you must also include in your IPM program : Avoidance (avoid planting susceptible plants.

    Timing:? time your planting to avoid bugs or other pests.

    Species or Cultivar: there are plants that are resistant in many cases to some pests.

    Cayenne Pepper: spray made from Jalapeneo peppers. Many insects cannot tolerate it. A lot of vertegrate pests also.

    INteresting…..Pro Pest Control companies use Pyritrins but are not listed as Organic.
    I use Talstar (a Pyrithrin) and I am not organic because I may use products that are more effective than the “Organic” equivalent.
    I am using the best of Integrated Pest Management rather than guess at the effectiveness? of control. I ACHIEVE control via IPM, and still apply less than “Organic Gardeners”.
