Natural Pesticide For Basil

Here is a brief step by step video about how to make the natural pesticide for basil.

  • How to make a natural pesticide:
  • Fill a spray bottle with water, and add 1 teaspoon of dish soap. Use hot water if you can, as it will help dissolve the soap faster. Shake well or stir until the liquid is completely mixed together with no bubbles or suds left in the bottle.
  • Spray your basil plants thoroughly with this mixture every few days until they are growing very well and producing lots of leaves! Make sure that you do not apply too much at once; if you do, it may burn their roots or simply wash away before it has had time to work (and we want our basil plants protected!).

It’s easy to spot diatomaceous earth in nature, as it resembles tiny white grains of sand. This is a product that you can buy at a garden center or hardware store and use as an alternative to pesticides. It’s made up of the fossilized remains of prehistoric microorganisms called diatoms (which are actually algae), and while it may be safe for humans, it’s dangerous to bugs like aphids because their exoskeletons are made up of waxy material that absorbs water easily. When they come into contact with an abrasive substance like DE—which contains sharp edges—they get cut open by these jagged particles.
