Homemade Natural Pesticide for Vegetables

I am looking for a natural bug killer that I can spray or sprinkle on my garden plants. The bugs are eating my kale and collard greens.

I have heard of people using Murphy's oil soap and water mixture on plants for insects. (07/15/2009)

Homemade Natural Pesticide for Vegetables

I live in Japan. One of my Japanese friends is a professional gardener. She said to make a strong tea from mint and sage and spray it on the plants daily. I had mint in my garden but no sage, so made a mixed mint tea from fresh leaves. Works great. Also, she suggested diluting whole milk 1:1 with water and spraying directly on bugs. The fat smothers them. (07/18/2009)
