DESCRIPTION

Citrus is especially helpful in targeting soft-bodied bugs, including slugs, aphids, fungus gnats, and mealy bugs. When sprayed directly onto the pests, this pesticide also works against ants and roaches.

HOW TO PREPARE

Peel an orange. If you do not have a fresh orange, use 1.5 teaspoons of dried citrus peels or 15 milliliters of orange oil.
Place the peels into a glass container and pour 2 cups (500 milliliters) of boiling water over the peels. Allow the solution to sit in a warm spot for 24 hours.
Strain the solution. Pour it into a strainer, removing the peels and saving the citrus-infused water.
Pour the pesticide into a large squirt bottle. Spray the entire plant to ward off most soft-bodied pests. Spray directly on top of ants and roaches.

HOW TO USE

Spray the entire plant to ward off most soft-bodied pests. Spray directly on top of ants and roaches.
