If my fig tree contracts bugs, diseases or any other insect, what do you recommend spraying it with? I was told to use flat beer, water and dish soap. What do you think?

i reckon that if you put a tablespoon of crushed garlic soaked overnight in 5LITRES water and spray the tree with the solution your bugs will migrate fast, do it to most of your plants, I found a grape farmer who used nothing else and it was a very green solution to getting rid of all his bugs. It certainly works on my veggies roses and fruit trees TRY ITJOHN BURTON
