Make Tobacco Spray for Insect Pests

We all know the risks of nicotine by smoking, but the same is true for bugs by eating. Rid your garden of pests by way of nicotine.

Get a can of chewing tobacco, flavored or not color. Strain through a coffee filter. Pour into spray bottle 50/50 with water. Spray on leaves. Reapply after rain or watering, that washes the spray off the leaves.

You can do the same thing with some cigarettes soaked in a spray bottle of water.

Nicotine is very toxic to bees . Small amounts confuse them so they can't forage and large amounts kill them.It stays around for along time.Organic isn't always harmless.

Nicotine even in small amounts will make bees confused , or in larger amounts will kill them. It is banned in several countries. Organic doesn't mean harmless!
