    A garlic or hot based organic homemade insecticide works well for spittlebugs. Puree peppers, garlic and water together. Let it sit for a day. Strain and mix in an organic liquid soap. Wipe the foam off your plants and spray this mixture. Always test a little of this mixture on a portion of the plant first to ensure that it will not harm it. Also, don’t apply such mixtures on a hot or sunny day, as the plant could burn and ultimately die.

    isnt the "big" in the spit? So if you physically remove each spittle( a mammoth task in my acre), what's the point of the concoction? Could I just spray it on?

    Thank you ! I didn't ever put it together that they actually grew into a real bug!
