How to make an earth friendly insecticide?

Effective by contact on all the types of insect, this earth friendly homemade insecticide is very simple to make. However, the insects need to be touched by the liquid during the application. I strongly recommend you spray this solution outside the house or in your garage…

Take 4 litres of water at room temperature and dilute 30 ml of liquid dish soap. Right before spraying the mixture on the bugs, add and mix (without lathering) approximately 25 cl of alcohol at 70%.

When you are done with the application, wait a few minutes then rinse your plants in order to not let dry the product. Don't let the homemade insecticide dry; some of your plants may be damaged.

More importantly, do not apply this product in full sun… wait for a cloudy day or better, spray in the evening when the sun is low.
