Homemade plant spray

Answered
Hi,
I have something destroying my plants, as you can see in the pictures below. Does anyone know how to solve this problem? I was told to try Bordo Copper Spray Fungicide from Reno Depot, but as it has a poison warning on the label, I am hesitant to use it. I am looking for something homemade/natural.
Thank You.

    I would spray them down with a organic three in one oil making sure you both sides of the leaves are covered. Discard any infested leaves.

    Try baking soda, water, olive oil and dish soap and spray it on. Its a natural fungicide that works great especially on tomatoe plants that are showing signs of blight

      I use a tbsp of BS, 1 tsp dish soap and 1 tsp OO in10 oz of water in a spray bottle. Also remove the damage first as those leaves will not recover

    Mix 1 gallon of water,1/2 cup of white vinegar,4 drops of any dish soap,and 10 drops of tea tree oil.Pull the infected leaves,spray both sides of the remaining leaves,and it should help.Think you have those small spiders!

      The tea tree oil is natural.You only need about 10 drops.Most bugs hate the stuff!Good luck!

    Becareful of spraying tree oil as although the odor is terrible it may also burn your plants as well as vinegar. Natural oil to me is the only way to go.

    Oils even natural can harm pollinators. Best just to try soapy water with dawn and water. I had beetles and it got rid of them and any bug I may have in my garden living in S Florida. You may need to respray a few times until you get rid of the infestation. There are organic insecticidal soap sprays that are just as effective.
