Bug Spray DIY Herb Tagetes Minuta 50grams dried
As requested, fresh dried herb of Tagetes Minuta for making your own bug spray!
I have done all the hard work for you with this lot, so you don’t even have to grow your own!
It is the whole plant and root, picked and dried just before the bulk of the seed matured, then put through the woodchipper, seived and bagged up ready to go.
I still do recommend you grow your own though, and here are all our Tagetes Seeds incase you decide to.
When I tested it here, this is what I did.
I adding heaped 2tablesspoons of dried herb to a 700ml pasta sauce bottle, then just topping up with boiling water and wacked a lid on it and left it on the bench overnight.
The next morning pour I got up and poured it through a fine strainer or cloth, then the filtered coffee coloured liquid into a 1liter spray bottle.
I gave the soft bodied critters like cut worms and cabbage moth larvae a spray morning and night, and it had them curled up dead in the bottom of the pot by the following week. Quite effective really, but it did take a few days to start knocking them off.
I don’t make any “guarantee’s” with this stuff, as I am far from an expert.
BUT, it does work well for us, and I reckon it is definitely worth a go, it doesn’t have any chemical nonsense in it, and it is only a couple bucks after all….
