These type of bottles fit on the end of your water hose and contain a concentrated solution that is sprayed out with the water to fertilize a yard. With one of these type of bottles, rinsed well and a spray nozzle for your water hose that has threads on the sprayer end you can accomplish many outdoor tasks.

  1. Tree web worms are a very bad problem in this part of the country. The safest, easiest way I have found to eliminate the problem to fill the bottle half full with water, put in a really good squirt of Dawn dish soap and attach to the threads on the spray nozzle then to the water hose, this will allow you to cut off the water flow at any given moment. I like to have a lot of water pressure so I can reach high into the tree without getting on a ladder then I squirt the webs with this mixture, saturating very well, the worms will die shortly.
  2. This will work for wasps, they will drop out of the air and it keeps you out of harm's way while being able to saturate the nest.
  3. Use bleach instead of Dawn. Never mix the two (read the Dawn bottle for precautions) to clean siding, lawn furniture, porches, boat decks or anything that needs a good bleaching.

I'm sure there are many other uses for these great bottles. I can't wait to find out what everyone else can add to this post.

When I was younger, so much younger then today, we had a worm roast. We sprayed gas on the worm web and lit it on fire. Of course we had the garden hose ready in case the fire would spread, but it never did and we quickly eradicated the pesky tree worms. But today I am a much older and wiser and a safety conscious adult, and so I do not recommend you have as much fun as we brats did!

You can also get rid of aphids and other pesky little bugs...earwigs...pill bugs, etc...by spraying your plants with the lease expensive red pepper sauce you can find...I found big bottles at the Dollar Store so don't waste your Tabasco! Mix it with water in your recycled sprayer and viola...spray away! Don't forget to spray under the leaves!

Are your worms the TENT CATERPILLERS that spread with their webbing? It is advised to remove the webbing and burn it safely.
Or do you have some other form of worm that we don't get way up north (MN).
