TRY BEFORE COMMITTING
Recipes for homemade insecticidal soap are available online. These mixes usually contain soaps designed to wash dishes, clothes and hands—not to control insects on plants. If you decide to make your own mix, test it on a leaf or two before spraying the whole plant. Formulas for household cleaners change often, so test each new bottle before using it on your precious plants.
