Try a Mild Shampoo Bug Spray
You can make bug spray at home with gentle baby shampoo and water. The mild shampoo will control different bugs that infest your garden and lawn.
You’ll need one gallon of water and one teaspoon of baby shampoo. The concoction will create homemade insecticidal soap.
You can spray it on trees, lawns, vegetables, and plants.
Get Rid of Standing Water
Make sure you remove standing water from your backyard. Standing water is a spot where mosquitos and other bugs will breed.
Make sure that there aren’t places on your lawn where water will collect. The water in a kid pool or birdbath should get changed often.
The smell of garlic will keep bugs away from your lawn. Sprinkle one or two pounds of dry granulated garlic across a 1000 square foot lawn. You can keep mosquitos away for one month.
You could also dissolve four teaspoons of garlic powder in two cups of water. Spray plants, soil, and the lawn to deter stink bugs.
Onion, Pepper, and Garlic Spray
Combining onion, pepper, and garlic will create a multi-purpose bug spray. You can apply the spray to plants, shrubs, trees, and grass.
Liquefy two garlic bulbs and two onions. Add two quarts of water and two teaspoons of cayenne powder.
After the ingredients get mixed, let the solution sit for an hour. Once the hour passes, you’ll want to strain the liquid into a handheld sprayer.
Before you spray your lawn, add two teaspoons of dish soap to your mixture and stir well. The soap you add will act as a surfactant and will reduce the water tension. The spray will stick to the grass better.
Try Making a Lemon Spray
You could try making a lemon spray. Mix one cup of lemon-scented ammonia and one cup of lemon-scented dish soap.
Pour the mixture into a 20-gallon lawn hose-end sprayer. The solution will get sprayed over your lawn.
Make sure you keep pets and people out of the area until the lawn dries to avoid breathing in the fumes.
If you need professional help, work with a pest control company. Spend time researching different companies. Check out these pest control prices.
