We have been spending some time with our plants lately, you know, out in the garden. Tending to them, fluffing their leaves and adding nutrients to their beds. It's all rather peace loving, earth mumma, soul sister stuff. Until the leaves of my radishes disappear almost overnight, while teeny tiny green caterpillars grow fat on their goodness. Drastic action must be taken, how will I ever beat my rival if I don't get this sorted?!
Picking off individual caterpillars quickly became tiresome and I knew there had to be an easier way. 0.23 seconds later, Google provided me with the answers I needed.
Put a whole garlic bulb through a garlic press and let it sit in a glass jar with several ounces of mineral or salad oil. Mix a few spoonfuls with dishwashing liquid, hot pepper sauce and water in a spray bottle. (source)
Caterpillar exodus complete.
Are you gardening at the moment?
