IMPROVED Soapy Water Insecticide Spray: Dawn Dish Soap

I use Dawn dish soap for a soapy water insecticide that really works on sucking insects like stink bugs, aphids and spider mites. It kills the insects in seconds and is inexpensive, easy to apply and very effective.

- Two teaspoons of Dawn hand dish soap (NOT anti-bacterial)
- One quart of water

Add soap to water and mix lightly. Spray on top and bottom of leaves while insects or eggs are present. Rinse after a few minutes. Apply early morning or early evening when sun is don't shining directly on plants.
