Last year I wrote several stories on how to get rid of aphids without the purchase of chemistry. Described above recipes is to use only the simplest of preparations which are available in every household. This article is no exception. Today I will tell about another way to deal with aphids, which is based on the action of iodine and soda ash. These harmless substances do not poison the soil and water, and do not accumulate in plant tissues.
Refusal of chemicals - this is my conscious choice. After all poisons, which are processed by the plant, eventually washed away by the rain on the ground, get into the ground water and spread over the site. It is unlikely that such a gardening can be called useful. Therefore, I use only natural remedies and simple security preparations.
Making the treatment solution
At the creation of the solution will take no more than 10 minutes. No special conditions are needed. The ingredients can be mixed on the street right in front of shrubs affected by aphids. We need:
- Liquid tar soap;
- Measuring syringe;
- 10 liters of water.
For the convenience of all the ingredients is better to plant in a small measuring cup, and after pour into a large bucket. So it will be easier to mix and produce a uniform solution.
Pour into graduated glass pint of water and add 2 tablespoons of soda ash. Spoons must be complete, but without gorochki. Further Measure out 10ml syringe. and adding iodine in sodium bicarbonate solution. Thoroughly mix and fill two tablespoons of liquid tar soap. If that is not at hand, you can use a simple soap or dishwashing detergent. However, try to make them as much as possible more natural.
Now thoroughly mix the resulting solution until uniform and poured into water desyatilitrovoe bucket. Again mix. The solution is ready for processing.
Useful effect solution
The solution is used for the fight against aphids, and for the prevention of its occurrence. In addition to pests, a combination of iodine and soda will get rid of mildew, botrytis and many other fungal diseases.
Processed culture using a garden sprayer or manual sprayer. During the procedure, you should try to spray the solution on all green parts of the plant. Twist the leaves break off or better straighten, otherwise the liquid will not get there.
Processing is carried out in order to prevent, as well as for the direct destruction of the pest. After the first treatment the predominant part of the aphids will be destroyed, however, in a few weeks to reassess the best treatment.
Recently, I had a group In contact with and Odnoklassniki, Where every day I place the announcements of new materials.
