    Some people use their dish soap (2 TBSP in a gallon of water) and a TBL spoon of veggie oil also, mix and fill a spray bottle. Spray the underside of the leaves as well as the tops and any bugs you see. After 2 hrs rinse so you do not burn the leaves. Some people use several drops mint oil in a spray bottle of water. Most bugs hate mint and you can leave it on without damage to the plants.

    Do you mean pest control as in bugs, or critters that eat your plants.

    Hi Lori-I'm a master-gardener from Va and I sprinkle bloodmeal and/or bonemeal around the perimeter of my garden to repel critters like rabbits and voles. For insect control, I use companion plantings of marigolds, sage, lavender, petunias and catnip. Most strong-scented herbs are natural repellents. Don't plant marigolds around green beans-lavender seems to work best against bean beetles and Japanese beetles, from my experience.

    You can spread out some shredded Irish Spring bar soap. You can shred the bars on a box grater or even in a food processor. Animals and insects hate the taste and smell.
