Kill those Green Caterpillers with Neem

I like to have mint. Okay, I admit it, I dream of being able to mix up a Mint Julip whenever I want.

Problem is, the green caterpillers here in San Diego, decimate my mint within a few days.  ! tablespoon Neem Oil, a liter of Water, a generous squirt of dish soap or Dr Bronners. Maybe a pinch of Borax to keep it mixed up a bit if you want and that’s it. Spray on plants.  Neem won’t kill flying bugs, just bugs that eat where your sprayed.   Awesome!

Oh, and by the way, this was the only natural bug repellent that ever worked so well and I’ve tried some doozies!
