You can buy non-scented liquid Castile soap (dr bronners is a good brand) for ease and it’s immediately in solution. I usually mix 4:1 water:soap and spray preventively. It doesn’t seem to deter ladybugs. Also, it’s really better to water in the morning (so the plants are ready for full sun; and leaving the soil wet all night invites fungal growth) and spray the soap mixture at dusk once per week (when bugs and worms are most active; also so the soap doesn’t run off with watering). Spray UNDER the leaves and the stem, too, to deter moth caterpillars (hornworms, etc). That along with pruning my tomato plants vigorously has always given me a bounty of tomatoes and peppers.

Hi will this work on keeping the bunnies and squirrels away from eating my flowers? They got al of my tulips this year
Hi ladies, I’ve been having the same issue but now it’s getting worse, the squirrels are digging into my garden and destroying my tomatoes, cucumbers, cilantro, mint, and peppers. What should I do besides using that soap??
Will ivory soap work?
What can I use on my rose bushes? Something is eating them up so bad that they are almost dead! In fact some are dead! Whatever is eating them has done it so fast, like over night almost!
