Organic Insecticidal Soap Recipes

14 years ago

Well, I've noticed several leafhoppers (Cicadellidae in the order Hemiptera) on my banana trees for about the past month and they continue to cause damage:

I've been spot spraying these guys with a safe insecticidal soap and they have been dropping dead. (Click on the thumbnail to read the entire label)


This spray has been effective but at $4.50 per bottle it is getting a little expensive. How else can I control these guys? Does anyone have a receipe for a homemade insecticical soap? What kind of soap? (Detergent? Non-detergent?) Any name brands of soap to use?

Thanks everyone!
