He LDSPrepper, For my DE I use a mason jar and take a nail and punch some
holes in a canning lid. I then hold it over the plants and tap it with my
other hand. It really gets the powder spread out evenly. Good Vid

karpetech says:

Loved the video. Recently started using the same brand of neem oil. I am
going to like and add to favorites

kaz hashemi says:

insect killer for plants

2 cups water
4 cloves garlic, smashed
4 cayenne peppers, including seeds
peel from one orange or lemon
1 teaspoon grated ginger, can use dried, ground ginger
1 teaspoon grated soap – not detergent—– put all together on the stove
for ca 20 min.

Pest Control of Houston says:

Good point. Thank you for mentioning that. I actually have never had a
problem but it is good to let people know.

lilibeth Souly says:

Please stop using Insecticide because that is what it is no matter how nice
they make it sound on the label, all you need to do is crush up 2 good size
bulbs of garlic, boil it in a pint of water,when it cools add to another 3
pints of water. Get a spray bottle and spray your plants with this galic
water,even spray the healthy ones. it will keep many pests away without
killing them and the veg will not smell of garlic after a couple of days
not to us humans anyway..Application of the spray should be repeated once
every 4-6 weeks during the summer season.
Happy veg growing from the UK.

Pest Control Orlando says:

I read that there are certain plants you can grow that will attract insects
like Lady bugs in your yard and others that eat these pests. I think
Spearmint is one plant.

Pest Control Austin says:

Very helpful video on organic pest control.

swilkers808 says:

Thank you very much. Hope this works for me. 

Pest Control Las Vegas says:

Thanks so much. Great advice! I am new at organic gardening. :)

Pest Control Phoenix says:

Thanks for the organic product info

Dick Lewis says:

Dave, where are you?? I THINK you went on a vacation but that was Weeks
ago. Haven’t seen any videos, or heard anything from you on youtube in a
while. concerned.

Adeel Iqbal says:

how are you , If anyone else wants to grow all your own amazing healthy
organic fruit quick it’s worth trying – Banfan Incredible Organic Miracle
(do a search on google)? Ive heard some amazing things about it from my
friend – great! 

John Nunya says:

if the DE kills any insect, why would you need BT or Neem oil?

Jumpoff A says:

I have seen about 10 different videos on pest control. One guy said the
name of the product that he uses so fast that I could understand what he
had said. Throughout the rest of his video he would call the product “IT.”
The rest of the people were very vague about their solution(s) to their
pest problem.Your video was short, sweet and to the point, Thank-You.

Helen Eddington says:

How do you get rid of ants in the garden?

acydeucy says:

Thanks for posting this clip. I find it helpful and informative.

mreisma says:

AZAMAX is a great organic product that works for me.

RLSgardener says:

I found BT, DE, Neem, Spinosad at Lowes. They seemed to be the best price
around. I shopped around various feed stores and garden centers and their
products seem $5-10 more. Lowes carries Greenlight and GardenSafe products.

LDSPrepper says:

All the links are below the video description. Click “show more”.

Amber Crystal says:

Yeah, I read that there are certain plants you can grow that will attract
insects like Lady bugs in your yard and others that eat these pests. I
think Spearmint is one plant. But if I was you I would look up what they
look like so you do kill them by mistake. I have pictures of them in my
I-photo on my mac.

Wayne Chandler Jr says:

Lol…it “was” there yesterday till the bugs ate it. Enjoy watching the
progress.

Psaltrymom says:

Thank you so much. I’m convinced had one of Egypt’s plagues been stink
bugs, there would have been a whole lot more first-borns !

MidTn says:

Thanks for the info.

pr4runner says:

nice garden

LDSPrepper says:

i bought it at a local feed store. You might also find it at tractor supply.

SylamoreCreek says:

When using the DA, make sure to avoid breathing the dust. It’s bad for your
lungs.

Dillon Qaphsiel says:

I’ve heard baby powder keeps ants away.

SPCkeith says:

what are your thoughts on tobacco? i hear that was a stand by for old time
homesteaders

LDSPrepper says:

Good point. Thank you for mentioning that. I actually have never had a
problem but it is good to let people know.

AnnBearForFreedom says:

Diatomaceous Earth,or just DE for short. its actually the crushed/ powdered
skeletons of diatoms, those tiny shelled guys that live in the ocean. The
shells are very sharp to soft-bodied insects, and the end result is
literally “death by a thousand cuts.”

72fr250 says:

You can get diomatacious earth from swimming pool stores. They use it for
ultra fine filters. I think we sold it for less then $20 for a 20 pound bag

maggiewishbone80 says:

Me too! Oh my gosh, I went through an all out war against them. I walked
around with a small pear of shears, cutting the heads off every stink bug I
saw. LOL

MrVic1954 says:

will diatamcious earth kill grasshoppers + locusts? Can you rub it on your
dogs to kill fleas? TIA

GaryMule says:

★★★★★

Gizmo EE says:

whats good for spider mites

Indoor Harvest Gardens says:

never seen anyone sprinkle it on the leaves, i use it around the soil and
it works great!

Backup of Bug Maniacs says:

Diatomaceous earth is excellent for the indoors, as well. Nice mentioning
that it’s safe and probably beneficial if ingested by most pets. We’ve
handled many severe indoor pest problems with a healthy dose of the stuff.
It works wonders.

craftymom7 says:

Thanks so much. Great advice! I am new at organic gardening. 🙂

j c says:

gotta love that DE my fav thing to use on the bad bugs

heismyhightower says:

You also put out such helpful videos, thank You . I have a question ~if
diomatacious earth can kill ALL INSECTS can I stick with that alone for all
my Veggie garden needs?

Dr0pDeAdFr3d says:

You probably already know this but if you need to dust your veggies you can
use clean panty hose…it gives a light dusting very evenly and there is
less waste. : ) Thanks for posting this…great tips.

BZP99 says:

How do you get rid of stink bugs. Our tomatoes have been destroyed by them
this year.

southfloridadave says:

once again great video LDS!

guerrilla man says:

Damn spider mites

maestro msd Forbes says:
