Baby Shampoo Pest Spray

What is the recipe for Baby Shampoo Pest Spray, it's a non-chemical pest control. I have small aphid looking bugs on my broccoli plants.

Hardiness Zone: 8b

Helen from Apple Valley, Utah



does this help?:

Home-made soap & oil spray for insect control

MIX: 2 1/2 TBSP cooking oil + 2 1/2 TBSP baby shampoo

Mix well in 1 gallon of water

NOTE: Shake well before and during application.

Water the plant well the day before you spray.

Do not spray during the heat of the day in full sun.

Reduce potential injury by rinsing the plant with fresh water a few

Hours after the soap spray application.

Thorough coverage of the pest is necessary so spray both sides of

The foliage thoroughly until it drips from the leaves.

Spray every 5-7 days as needed.
