      What kind of soap do you use and how much? I recycled a couple of Febreeze bottles which holds 27 oz. that equals 3.37 (8 oz. cups). Also, can you use this on Hostas and monkey grass too?

    Use a system control by Bayer for roses,it is a insect,fungus and fertilizer in one and will aid in keeping the plant deathly all season

    If either of the above fail, you can try Neem Oil is a good remedy as well.. Can be purchased at most nurseries, home depot....
    It can be used on roses, herbs, vegetables.....worked very well for me. Good luck

    Try 2.5 tsp. of dawn dish soap without bleach and 2.5 tsp. Vegttable oil tob1 gal. Soft water then spray top and bottom of each leaf you want to saturate your leaves where the pest are.

      Thanks Alisa, I tried same spray last year for Japanese beetles but the leaves fried because temp. so i will avoid oil this year. In our area temp. is some time too hot like 30 + or 40 + so I think I will go without oil. Thanks,

    I had the same problem. Some one suggested I sprinkle cayenne pepper at the base of the roses. I did and haven't had a problem in several years.

    • Parv Parv on Jun 03, 2017
      Thanks Sabrina I can do that not raining today.

  • Parv Parv on Jun 02, 2017

    Parv, Most products are cold pressed, organic and come in a concentrate. I put it in a spray bottle and mix as per the ratio on the bottle. The one I have been using is approx. 1 tsp/ qt. of warm water. It goes a long way. Usually spray once every 7 days or so, pending rain and such....or if really infested, you can spray every day.... but I usually do it once and then just "monitor" it.
    There a ton of different brands, but I have been using a brand called Bonide and have been getting good results.

    It also looks like they sell Neem Oil in pre-mixed spray bottles as well......

    Cinnamon works for black mold. And so does spraying the leaves with baking soda water for white powder mold.

      Thanks Lgselby. You have answer my question, for ants what i do take whole coconut make hole with knife fill with sugar put back the piece on which you cut off then bit far you dig whole in the ground may be 5-6 inches deep then put coconut there and pour soil on it , and ants will find there food there.

  • Lgw Lgw on Jun 07, 2017
    That's very interesting. We are having a big problem with ants this spring. I hate to kill them I just want them to move away from my garden

    • Parv Parv on Jun 07, 2017
      Thats how they get food , even if you can't do the quickest way mix sugar and some rice or any other grain sprinkle far from garden ants will be so happy . When you see grain is finished time to time repeat it . Some people pour milk 2% or whatever you have handy may be half cup or so they don't stay there I personally didn't experience this what I heard this works like magic.
