I don’t mind little bugs. but the snails are what kill me. I’ve been at
war with them since time began. They eat the seedlings before they ever
get chance to grow.

What about Diatomaceous earth. 

mucnagow2 says:

I learn so much from your videos! This one was filled with information.
Thank you!

I am very blessed to have an abundance of ladybugs in my area and believe
me, I am grateful.

An all natural pesticide that generations of my family has used is tobacco.
Whether you grow your own and dry it or go to the tobacco store and get it
already bagged doesn’t matter. It works the same.

Soak dried tobacco in water. I use 5 gallon buckets. The longer you soak
it, the stronger the water. Spray it on the plants.

This has no effect on any kind of mold or fungus. It is particularly good
at stopping leaf cutters.

It has no effect on the taste of fruits and vegetables but I do not spray
when the plants are in bloom.

california tomatoes? hahaha

George Stephen says:

I just wish I could get Rid of Harlequin Bugs, nothing seems to work on
those pests

leifcatt says:

I had to smile when I found out I was doing something right. I have been
using Neem oil and Dr. Bronner’s soap for years. My Grandpa introduced me
to Dr. Bronner’s in the early 70’s. It was his favorite soap because it was
” a natural way to clean everything except sin.” Just had to share. :-)

Randy Lantz says:

More Josh. 

Permaculture Prepper says:

in a permaculture garden you plant plants that attract the “good” bugs and
deter the “bad” bugs, this is why we companion plant tomatos and basil….
you didn’t mention lemon grass and citronella geranium as natural pest
control tools…. wow we are spraying now… please everybody learn
companion planting with herbs and other perennials, a natural spray of dish
soap and tobacco with companion planting will do all the work. God bless

This is a long episode, but if you time to check it out I think the
information is interesting. I love learning about “non-chemical” ways of
gardening. Thanks +Learn Organic Gardening at GrowingYourGreens 

LadyDistelfink says:

The best strategy to deal with pests long term is to attract beneficials.
Plant yarrow, basket of gold, peppermint etc. to attract hoverflies,
parasitoid wasps and ladybugs – they’ll take care of those aphids and other
bugs. Attract birds to your garden and they’ll keep the caterpillars at
bay. Beneficials never eliminate pests completely, but they definitely
control them. Plus all the flowers look nice and attract pollinators!

Jesse Stay says:

I’ve had good success this year with a combination of ladybugs, green
lacewings, and parasitic wasps. It will take time, but my hope is the
entire ecosystem equals out.

Will these two products kill mosquito in thr garden?


DCFCfanatic says:

I’ve growing sunflowers, the pests I’ve had to deal with are small ants,
grasshoppers, and tiny small green worms. I always get rid of them but
they always come back so they are terrible. Although now that the flowers
have bloomed, the bees are around, which is cool, the bees are fine.

Evermont King says:

I love california tomatoes

FrugalPrepper says:

Little to broad for me. It is going to kill the good and bad bugs. PM can
be controlled but doing a application of sulfur now and then. BE Takes
care of the caterpillars. Beer traps take care of slugs. All are organic
and target the specific pest you are after and not all insects.

Elisheva Yisrael says:

boys like bugs pay them to find them LOL

Sirena Delmar says:

wonder if we can use pure castile liquid soap instead of the one you’re

Paige of Light says:

“Say hello to my little friend” lol! You guys are hilarious… I especially
love the machine gun soundbite.. too funny!

Marcy RP says:

Do bees avoid the neem spray?

STONER Timmy says:

California tomatoes !!! That was a good laugh as I sit here smoking my own
Cali tomatoes 

CannaHeaven says:

Pressure spraying with water helps, but the best solution is pressure spray
them with water and a drop of natural dishwashing soap. The soap will wash
away a protective layer on the pests skin/armor and makes them deadly
vulnerable to the elements. A little sunshine and wind will do the rest.

John McQuillan says:

Excellent show! Josh seems to have a genuine concern for the environment.
More Josh! Thanks for this :)

GrowMap says:

Will this control heavy infestations of grasshoppers? Texas and Oklahoma
have serious grasshoppers especially in areas with large pastures adjacent
to gardens.

jimcurdy says:

Damn, rich guys, aren’t you? Poor guys like me just use diatomaceous earth
or a spray solution of 1 oz of Ajax in 32 ozs of water. Kills everything
for me for the last 64 years. Of course, I do advise y’all to heed the
warnings given in this wordy video about big biz trying to kill us all off.
It’s common sense and good biz practice to murder your customers; right?
I’m sure the ajax will do me in before I reach 100 years.

Andy Fetisov says:

WOW! This natural anti pest recipe kicks ass and Deserves an awareness
campaign so the farmers that have fallen victim to Monsanto can see the
My Cali “tomatoes” and the ppl that will benefit from their purity will be

WheepingWillow2 says:

IS THERE any ONE product that puts all that stuff in the soil which u
mention at the beginning of this vid? The Rockefella and Bush families got
together back in 1850’s or 60’s creating FERTILIZER which depleted our soil
of ORGANIC SULFUR WHEREBY we don’t get it from our FOOD, which by 1950’s
gooberment forced commercial farmers to put it on their fields, so by
1970’s diseases like diabetes, heart disease, ADD, ADHD, autoimmune
diseases, became prevalent. ORGANIC SULFUR PROJECT, provides 4 of the most
critical amino acids IT’S A FOOD, not a supplement, IT REBUILDS THE CELLS
IN THE BODY!! http://www.organicsulfur-msm.com I GET NOTHING FROM SHARING THIS

DMC Grant says:

Josh seems very nice and I agree and support his views, but I found this
episode too commercial and too long for my taste. Lot’s of great info

Unlockedization says:

Apparently some plants produce phytoalexins as part of their own immune
response to being injured or attacked by pathogens, bugs and radiation. One
example of these types of chemicals has been identified collectively under
the term salvestrols. When ingested, these chemicals are broken down
through metabolic processes within the body and in turn have been
demonstrated as having positive effects on the human immune system and
overall health of the body. Salvestrols apparently have anti-cancer
properties when broken down by enzymes within the body. Conventional use
of artificial agricultural chemicals EG Pesticides, fungicides etc inhibit
the plants natural defense system as those chemicals are replacing the job
of the plants immune system.

I think organic farming is definately an essential progressive step forward
for the entire eco-system. Salvestrols and many onther important immune
boosting chemicals have been shown to be much, much higher in organically
grown foods in comparison to conventionally grown foods. I’m really happy
that there are people out there thinking, growing and teaching this way.
Thankyou to you! I really do appreciate what you do. Huge respect!

I do wonder however through natural curiosity whether there still may be
some interference with the plants natural defense system through the use of
organic farming techniques which might lower the nutritional profile of the
foods we consume. I only wonder as it’s becoming increasingly apparent that
nature knows best and perhaps while organic farming is an excellent
progression maybe there could be another way of life which could yield even
better results. I say this as although organic farming is much much better
it still has to be considered artificially grown in the sense that organic
chemicals wouldn’t naturally apply themselves to plants. EG neem oil
wouldn’t grow legs and walk onto the plant for our benefit. With this in
mind it could be said that the term organic food is still slightly skewed
from it’s true meaning. I attribute this misunderstanding to marketing and
misinterpretation. Perhaps the hunter gatherer lifestyle was useful for
many things such as making sure by humans having to move all the time
(excercise) there was more genetic diversity and less chance of deformity
through interbreeding. There would also be the added benefit to fruits
through seed dispersal by using humans and other mammals as carriers who
would poop out the seeds onto whatever terrain they found themselves in.
I’m not certain of the relevance of this question however I’m glad there
are people out there reading this and supporting organic farming techniques
as opposed to conventional techniques which destroy and pollute the entire
fabric of our earth.

I just wonder if in acceptance of nature we could find a perfect balance
and conceive a utopian lifestyle together by combining our creativity with
logic. Obviously the world would look very different than today but imagine
a world free from disease, humans constantly moving, seeing the world as
they go from one place to another, interacting authentically with one
another, eating the most varied and healthy diet, seeing the most beautiful
sights to see, co-operation instead of competition, freedom instead of
control, experiencing life for what it is. Alot of people conceive the idea
of anarchy when this is suggested but that’s not what I envision. We have
consciousness now, it’s just too bad we’re conditioned to be unable to
imagine things outside the perception of fear. Call me a dreamer or a
hippie but I see I bright future for everything in life as long as we don’t
succomb to the same kind of greed and negligence that gave birth to the
modern worlds problems. I also sense that it would take some massive ego
destruction to let go of old things, there are things even I wouldn’t like
to throw away even though I know that by me using them I contribute to the
worlds problems. That being said, I’m sure we could re-design them so we
wouldn’t have to let those things go completely, we could possibly
re-create them better adapted to the environment, truly sustainable maybe?

Anyhow thankyou for the video it was really informative, thankyou to
anybody who read this and curiously wondered about what I wrote. Have a
good one ;)

Harlequin Bug on your Collards!

Eric Seltzer says:

John been a fan for years .. however you have turned commercial … get
back to why you got in to this in the first place … this infomercial is
offensive and not what I signed up for when I subscrribed to your channel. 

TheSincererAlmond says:

My issue is Deer, once I see one at 3 am they will be dead 😉 lol

also on the fertilizer issue. my garden is only 3 years old tops, I do not
have very good soil, ricky and mixed with clay from mid-Missouri. I have
added peat moss, horse manure, humus, and I have just recently added some
epsom salt because my plants the past 2 years have turned yello9w, I couold
never figure out why, my soil is well drained, so it is not overwatering. I
also had to break down and add some fertalizer, I NEVER EVER!! w2anted to
add commercial fertilzer, but it hasd nitrogen, sulfur yada yada yada. I
understand the difference in organic vs commercial, but I couldnt do it
anymore. Hopefully next year I am able to build raised beds and really do
some growning. P.S. my garden is about 20ftx15ft

Boogie Brew says:

Appreciate the feedback and yes indeed, stand corrected on just who
developed chemical weapons. Certainly, post World War II there was an
explosion in pesticide use and the proliferation of chemical weapons
coincided with the pesticide boom in a rather sinister manner.

Christine McCain says:

will this help with my root knot nematodes??

Sum Ting Wong says:

Hey guys, do either of you have any recommended references on companion
planting you would like to share? Thanks to both of you for your efforts!
