Baking Soda Insecticide For Plants

Baking soda is an all-natural, affordable pest control method that can keep your plants healthy

Baking soda is a natural, safe and inexpensive way to control pests on your plants. It acts as a fungicide and insecticide, so it can be used to control fungus as well as insects. Baking soda is made of sodium bicarbonate, which has antifungal properties. It’s also basic, meaning it’s alkaline in nature and will kill fungi that cause plant diseases such as powdery mildew or rust spots by raising the pH level of your soil or planting medium.

Baking soda isn’t toxic to humans or pets but should not be ingested by them directly because it does have an unpleasant taste; however you don’t need to worry about ingesting any if you’re applying it directly on plants because they won’t come into contact with enough baking soda for any harm to occur from direct ingestion (it would take substantial amounts eaten over time for there to be any concern).

Why Do Gardeners Use Baking Soda as a Pesticide?

The simple answer is that baking soda is a safe, non-toxic pesticide. It’s easy to make and use, and it can effectively control a wide range of pests on your plants. But why choose baking soda as your go-to pest control?

  • Safe for humans and pets: Baking soda is not only safe for humans, but also safe for pets (and wildlife). It won’t harm children or pets if they ingest a small amount of the insecticidal formula; in fact, you can even use it around your house without having to worry about the dangers of chemical pesticides lingering in the air or on surfaces you touch.
  • Non-toxic: While other commercial insecticides contain harsh chemicals that may be dangerous for children or pets if ingested in large quantities, baking soda does not pose this risk—it’s completely natural!

How to Make and Use a Baking Soda Insecticide

To make the baking soda insecticide, mix one teaspoon of baking soda and one teaspoon of vegetable oil with two teaspoons of mild liquid soap. Combine all ingredients in a spray bottle and shake well. Spray plants thoroughly to coat their leaves, stems and fruit (if applicable). Apply once every three weeks as needed to control pests on the plant.

Follow these 3 steps to make your own baking soda insecticide to keep your plants healthy.

  • Make sure to test it on a few leaves first to make sure it won’t bleach the leaves
  • Add a few drops of dish soap to make it stick to the leaves
  • Most effective when applied in the morning, but can be reapplied every 3-4 days
