I am one for the ultimate mass destruction, but this stuff works. It's safe, non-toxic. Not enough of anything to throw off the taste of your veggies but keeps bugs and slugs away.
This is what I use. If it rains, reapplication required; not toxic.
1 C alcohol
3 TBS hot sauce (no seeds for sprayer)
3 tsp liquid dish detergent
1 gal water
1/8 C alcohol
1/2 TBS hot sauce (no seeds for sprayer)
1/2 tsp liquid dish detergent
Remember, NO SEEDS, they will clog up the sprayer. I use an old windex or fabreze sprayer and run the mixture thru a sieve (NO PULP EITHER).
