I tried this at $12 a bottle...
and and it worked okay but you have to reapply after every rain so it was getting to be expensive.
Then I found a homemade recipe which was basically the same thing.
Chopped garlic - $1.00
crushed red pepper - $1.00
I was able to get the items inexpensively at the dollar store which was a bonus.
I put the mixture in a large glass jug with a lid and sat it out in the sun. The longer it sits the more potent it is! After couple days, I poured the liquid through a fine strainer and put the liquid in a spray bottle. Even though this was a cheaper alternative, I still had to constantly reapply it.
They look like green lollipops!!
It's been six weeks now and it appears to be working.
Cheap, easy and an extra bonus is even with plenty of rain here, it takes a long time to melt!
Here's a tip:
To keep your gardening tools sharp, store them in a old bucket, filled with sand and some motor oil. I did this last winter and now my tools are rust free and well oiled!
