Red pepper spray
Here's an effective pepper spray. This is the concentrated form that needs
to be diluted before use. Needless to say, watch out for your eyes when
preparing and using this and always be careful of beneficial insects when
using any insecticide, whether organic or chemical (why would you want to
use a chemical insecticide anyway?).
Red Pepper Spray Concentrate:
1 unpeeled onion
1 unpeeled head of garlic
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
3 pints water
1. Chop onion and garlic and combine all ingredients in a saucepan.
Simmer 20 minutes.
2. Cool and strain
3. Store in jars in the refrigerator--lasts up to 6 weeks.
4. **To use, dilute 1 tablespoons of concentrate with 1 pint of water. Add a
little Ivory snow.
Red pepper spray is a good general insect spray and is effective against
