Colorado Potato Beetle Spray

If you have problems with the Colorado Potato Beetle, this is the recipe for you.

  • 6 tea bags to 1 pint of water
  • 1 cup camomile tea
  • 1 cup tobacco juice (see below)

  • 1 cup antiseptic mouth wash

Combine the above ingredients and put in sprayer and spray onto plants. This works well. Apply liberally and repeat often as necessary.

Tobacco juice - combine a couple of dried tobacco leaves in 1/2 gallon of water. Bring to a boil and let stand until cool. Strain to use as tobacco juice.

Is there an alternative option for those of us who do not have a couple of tobacco leaves laying around?
