When the change of season approaches we worry about the care and protection of our plants.

But, there is something that makes it difficult to keep them in good condition due to the pests that attack them mercilessly until they kill them or make them seriously ill.

Next, we show you how to make a homemade insecticide that is very effective in killing pests quickly.


You need:

25 ml of neutral soap
50 ml white or apple cider vinegar
1 liter jug
Measuring glass

Step by step:

We went on to review all the plants that we have, to identify very well those that are attacked by some type of pest.
We take the jug and fill it with 1 liter of water.
Next, we take the measuring cup and pour in 25 ml of neutral soap (it will surely be the one we use to wash the dishes).
Let’s pour this measure of soap into the jar.
Now we proceed to measure the 50 ml of vinegar that can be either white vinegar or apple cider vinegar and add it.
We mix the 3 components well until we notice that foam begins to appear.
It is time to place this mixture inside the sprayer.
It is important to spray the plants on a cloudy day or at dusk or at night. If we do it under full sunlight, we will only be able to burn the plants.
We proceed to spray each affected plant, trying to make the spray fall evenly on leaves and stems.
Once we finish with this first spraying, let the preparation act for at least 15 minutes.
After this time, with another sprayer or the same one previously washed and filled with clean water, we spray all the plants again, as if trying to clean them of the previous mixture.
When you notice that there are still some traces of live pests, you will let 2 or 3 days pass and you will repeat the same procedure.


Proceed to do a review of all your plants at least 1 time per week.
If you notice dry leaves starting to appear, it may be due to the change of season.
Never overwater. Excess water rots the roots. Preferably a little every day.
Try to provide them with a good fertilizer so that they resist the entry of pests much more.
Not every bug on your plant is necessarily bad. Many of them use plants only for habitat, but not for food.
You can carry out anticipated or preventive treatments. Do not wait for the plants to become infected and apply a product monthly to prevent these bugs from attacking our plants.
