Pests

Zone Cape Town, South Africa | gillianv.eva added on June 24, 2017 | Answered

Hello. Something is eating my plants in the veggie patch! All the leaves have been decimated on my peas, granadillas and spinach. Can you tell me what to spray that is organic? I would like to make something up myself but not sure what to use. I\'ve heard a spray made with grated chilli, water and a liquid soap as a sticking agent will help. Is this correct? We are in the middle of our rainy season so I need something that will last.

    Treat the plants with Neem Oil.
    Neem Oil is organic and safe for people, plants and bees.
