Organic Pest Control – End Problems with Bugs Forever in Your Garden

Alright! This is John Kohler with
Today I have another exciting episode for you. As you guys can see, today I’m harvesting
my peppers. End of the season, harvesting peppers, but this is not a pepper harvesting
video. I might have that in another video for you guys about when to harvest your food
because we are going to frost soon and then we’re going to have to pull these guys up
anyways, but what today’s episode is about actually it’s about pest and bug control.
I know many of you guys have pest problems. Many of you guys may not even be gardening
because of the pests. You fear the pests, like ‘oh my gosh, I can’t even grow anything
because the bug’s going to eat it,’ right? Don’t fear the pests any longer. In this video
we show the organic solution that you can use to take care of the majority of your pest
problems. So, the first thing I’d like to say is, you know, before you even get the
pests, it’s important to prevent the pests from happening in the first place. So, the
number one way to do that, in my opinion, is build good soil. You know, you’re as healthy
as the food you what, right? If you’re eating McDonalds, junk food, fast food, processed
food, things in packages, bottles, and jars, right? You’re not going to be as healthy as
somebody that’s eating a whole foods, you know, diet rich in fruits and vegetables,
and our plants are like us. They need to be fed good food. So, we don’t want to just put,
you know, soil down there and then put some chemically made fertilizer and whatnot because
the plants aren’t going to get everything they need. I encourage you guys to use the
biologic organic gardening and farming methods, which includes adding things like bacterial
compost, fungal compost, the trace minerals like the rock dust, C90, applying compost
tea, the worm castings, the insect frast, and all the other biologic agents that actually
put the bacteria and fungi and other microorganisms into your soil so hat they can ensure your
plants thrive. Now, even in my garden where I have been doing this, I do have some pest
pressures. So, what we’re going to talk about today is how to deal with the pest pressures
if you have them, but the goal, number one goal, overall is to not get the pest pressures,
right? By growing good healthy crops and building your soil, you know. For example, fro us,
like if your wife or husband has a flu or a cold, right? They’re sleeping right next
to you in the bed, they’re sharing, you know, utensils with you, hopefully you’re not sharing
toothbrushes, but they’ll be sick, but you wont, that’s because you have immune system.
Well, plants are the same way. They have immune systems. So, once again, build the soil so
that you have healthy plants, they have a stronger immune system, and they’ll be able
to fend for themselves. Think about it. For, you know, the millions of year, trillions
of year, I don’t know how many, I wasn’t a history major, that the earth has been around,
there was no such thing as pesticides, even organic ones. Nobody sprayed anything. The
plants literally had to fend for themselves. The difference between then and now, among
other things, was the soil. There was a lot better soil, more nutrition in the soil, and
the plants were able to have string immune systems. Nowadays, when you’re growing in
imported topsoil, soils that are devoid of minerals and the microbiologics in the soil,
the plants aren’t going to be as healthy. So, number one, grow healthy plants so that
you won’t have to do anything else. The second way I like to control pests is manual control.
So, you know, as I’ve been pulling my peppers, I’ve seen a couple small snails in here. So,
the easiest thing is to pull them off, smush them, compost them, get ducks or chickens
and feed them to your ducks and chickens. Manual control is always best. The only negative
with manual control is if you have acreage, you won’t be able to do it. If you have a
small 4-foot by 4-foot bed, I always encourage you guys to do manual control first before
spending any extra money to buy any gadgets or gizmos or sprays to spray on your crops.
Manual control is always the easiest. Hire some neighborhood kids. Maybe you got some
kids, you know, in your household, have them find slugs and pay them a nickel. Maybe might
have to pay them more than a nickel. Pay them a quarter, maybe a dollar. Pay them a dollar
for every slug they find, and that’ll get them busy, they’ll learn about, you know,
the importance of hard work, and you’ll get a slug free garden and you’ll be like, ‘okay,
everyone, you get a dollar. Go out and hunt them,’ and they’ll sit there all day trying
to find them, right? So, healthy plants, manual control, the next way I’d recommend is by
using other kind of control. So, number one, grow healthy plants, number 2, manual control.
Oh, another thing you can do is also exclude the pests. So, if you have heavy pest problems,
you know, make hoops and grow with the remade fabric shade cloth or clear plastic over the
top of your plants so that the bugs can’t get in there to eat your stuff, right? So,
exclude them. The next way I would do is when I start to spray stuff. So, the first spray
that I recommend for you guys is to spray only water. Water is natural, it’s like the
rain. We’re not going to emulate the rain and just spray just droplets, but we’re going
to spray on a pressurized spray at high pressure. I have had videos on tis in the past. It’s
called the bug blaster. That’s the device I use in my garden when I have pest issues
to spray them off. Works good in soft-bodied insects like the aphids and whiteflies and
whatnot, spray them off, and that should be the end of them. If I have a persistent issue
and the other ways that I control them don’t work, I have a pretty big outbreak, then I’m
going to do what you guys are going to learn next. So, I’ve been using this technique myself
in my very garden for about a year now, and nothing that I’ve tested has worked better,
and this is super simple, super easy and anybody can do it. So, what we’re going to have on
todays show is a special guess. We got Josh Cunnings of the Boogie Brew Company. Now,
formally it is the Boogie Brew Product because as a grower himself, and he grew lots of California
tomatoes if you know what I mean, he grew the best California tomatoes ever, and the
fertilizer chemicals got too expensive, so he made up his own natural organic solution,
and guess what? Besides growing California tomatoes, that stuff also works on everything.
I mean, as the results, you can see them, it’s doing really good, but besides just having
good nutrition, you also sometimes need to control pests, because we can’t be like, ‘there’s
no pests, there’s no pests, there’s no pests,’ and avoid them because then they’re going
to take over. So, he has a natural organic method to control pests that, you know, that
I use in my garden. So, I guess, without further ado, let’s get into Josh’s clip and let him
show you how deal with pests and actually how he’s doing it in my very garden to take
care of pests for me, and I like that a lot. This is Josh Cunnings and I’m appearing on
behalf of John Kohler here at his own garden, in his home town of northern California, and
as you just saw, his peppers have all been doing really well, his strawberries have been
basting. In fact, 90% of John’s garden has been absolutely raging all summer long. Here
we are deep in the summer, the garden just keeps on perpetually going, but just like
all growers, John has suffered a couple of relatively minor disease, pest, and fungus
disease pressure problems. Speaking of one, it’s right here behind me. His squash plants,
and it’s PM. It’s called powdery mildew, and right there I took the liberty of plucking
one of his particularly afflicted PM squash leaves, and as you can see, it looks like,
you know, snow has been unceremoniously sort of sprayed, if you will, on his leaves. Now,
this is not a healthy sign. This is a fungus that’s attacking his squash leaves, and is
actually quite prevalent here in Sonoma County, which is a coastally influenced region, and
also has a big grape republic behind it. A lot of grape monoculture growing, and so that
has led to conditions which have allowed PM, powdery mildew, to run rampant amongst the
grower here in north Cal, and also John has been suffering from a big problem, a pest
pressure that’s occurring right now in his tree collards. Let’s go to the other part
of his garden and take a peek at that. Let’s touch on the subject of pesticides. If you
go into just about any hardware stores pest control aisle, you can smell a noxious odor
oozing from the virtual smorgasbord of chemical substances. Amazingly, most people seem to
accept this as perfectly normal without even considering the dangerous effects to our environments.
America produces a mind-boggling 5 billion pounds of pesticide products each year alone.
That’s almost 20 pound of poison for every man, woman and child in the US, annually.
Unbelievably, pesticides originate form chemical warfare products. Yes, the same fearsome substances
developed by the Nazis and subsequently expanded into our weapons arsenals, creating a perfect
trickledown opportunity for the military industrial complex, who could profit from feeding the
same poisons back to the entire human population. Just look at Monsanto. Creators of that lethal
chemical used in the Vietnam War, Agent Orange, and who are now a worldwide pesticide conglomerate.
The question is, why? The industries limits are endless. Is it a runaway train that just
can’t be stopped? Yea, are there any grounds for the existence of these products to begin
with? Barely one tenth of a percent of chemicals actually reach their target. The other 99.9%
goes straight into our environment. Where does is it all end up? I’ll tell you where
it goes. It bioaccumulates up the entire food chain, polluting all of our ground water and
leaving a cancerous footprint in the organs and tissues of each and every one of us. Now,
here’s what you can do about all this. Just like John says, ‘vote against this disgusting
and poisonous scam with your dollars,’ and the good news is, that while the false promise
of chemical pesticides has become a world-wide tragedy, there are powerful and natural recipes
that flat out work against bugs a disease. Today, I’m going to show you how you can easily
win any bug battle using my clean, green, Dr. Broaner’s Salsuds soap, and neem oil recipe.
Let’s go take a look at John’s garden, where his famous tree collards have been suffering
from a particularly ugly infestation. Through JK’s uber garden jungle we go, and I passed
his stricken tree collard greens here and let’s go take a peek at what he has over here.
Wow. Well, what do we have here? These look like some seriously infested tree collard
greens, and just what are these bugs and the resident colony? Who are these little suckers
who’ve been inhabiting John’s hapless tree collard leaves? I mean, my god, they’ve simply
gone to town here, I’m afraid. Any of you (unclear) who are entomologists out there,
we could use some help in identifying these little suckers. They almost look somewhat
like orange, overlarge ladybugs. Definitely some sort of Romani bug, or a leaf miner type
creature. Oh, man. This is a pretty serious infestation. Well, we’re going to win this
battle with our favorite all time pest control recipe, and we’re going to keep John’s garden
free of these nasty critters once and for all. I’ve yet to find a better all-around
pest and disease controlling recipe than the one that I’m about to tell you of, but first
of all, you’re going to need any type of quart or pint-sized jar that’s party filled with
warm water, alright? This part is important, and we’ll talk about why you need this item
in a minute. Now, these here are the two vital ingredients which make up our boogie bug battling
super formula. Dr. Brauner’s salsud soap and cold press neem oil. This one’s called, appropriately
enough, super cleaning. Alright, so, now, Dr. Brauner’s, a lot of you are familiar with
their famous line of castile soaps, which are considers the world’s finest quality,
containing only the purest of ingredients, with no harsh or caustic agent in their recipe.
It’s the only allowed soap, for instance, used in places like the Havasupai Indian reservation,
which is a pristine environment located deep in the depths of the grand canyon, where the
native tribal dwelling residents have insisted that their land be respected and that their
soil ecosystem remains completely clean, pure, and unpolluted. Now, this is not your more
typical Brauner’s soap, like their poplar castile line of peppermint, almond, or, for
instance, their lavender body soap, but it’s their highest suds formula. It’s made for
increased detergent power, and you can find this in your local health food stores dish
and laundry soaps section. Now, as is typical with Dr. Brauner’s labeling, there’s a ton
of information on here. It’s made basically from some of the cleanest soap substances
on earth, including coconut fatty acids. Now, what I love about this product are its fantastic
penetrating, surfactant, and wetting agent capabilities. It is a superb spreader sticker
agent and it can be used as a valuable mixing ingredient with a whole host of foliar foods
for your plants. The cool thing about Dr. Brauner’s is that they give you 1% Canadian
fir and Canadian spruce needle oil. These are pure, essential oils from fir and spruce,
and which are added to increase the soaps purifying powers. There’s been a lot of research
indicating the benefits of pine oil to plants, including a fair degree of bug repellency,
as well as in aiding nitrogen uptake, but, of course, our true hero in the boogie bug
battle is undoubtedly neem oil. This has become my favorite brand. It’s called, appropriately
enough, super clean neem, and what makes this particular neem oil so effective is the fact
that it’s actually obtained from a truly cold pressed oil, not just expeller pressed. Now,
those of you who are familiar with good quality olive oil will know the difference between
expeller pressed and a truly cold pressed virgin oil, and clean neem fulfills its name
with its purity and quality. Now, let’s not forget that in India, where I believe the
neem tree actually originates from, throughout history, they’ve experienced devastating locust
infestations, which have been known to wipe out an entire countywide region of all green
plant life. The only plant which is left entirely untouched by these massive locust scourges
where they come thought and they consume every piece of green vegetative matter that they
can devour is the neem tree. Now, that right there indicates, to me, neems supreme bug
repelling abilities. Now, neem is actually great for human health. It’s good for the
immune system, for infections, viruses and all disorders of the human musculous gladital
system. There is a multitude of benefits from neem, and I’m not going to pontificate to
you about it all here, but you can go to a website called and you
can learn more of this truly amazing panacea. All parts of the neem tree, from its bark
to the leaves, the fruits and indeed the oil from its seeds, contains beneficial properties.
The tree even grows in arid climates, it thrives in poor soils, and it’s actually even able
to restore depleted soils of lost nutrients. Now, believe it or not, a giant chemical and
pharmaceutical corporation, I believe it was a company knows as WR Gracie. They actually
tried to patent the neem tree for their own profit-driven usage, and by the 1990’s, they
were defeated in their efforts to monopolize such a valuable natural species by coalition
of farmers from India and environmental activist in Europe, who were able to get the international
patent office to successfully revoke the patent. I mean, how can you earn the exclusive rights
to a native tree, right? It’s ridiculous, and it’s highly indicative of the greed which
these chemicals pesticide companies will go to in order to get a stranglehold on the worlds
entire farming infrastructure. The truth is, neem is highly effective as a natural and
potent pesticide on over 90% of invasive bug species without any long term adaptation or
resistance by the target insects to it’s multitude of natural compounds. Now, keep in mind that
this is not the case with those chemical pesticides, which the manufacturers have to keep reformulating
at they unleash every stronger compounds in an effort to outpace the bugs own populations
abilities with each new generation to build increased resistance to mankind’s latest salve
of poisons. Now, you talk about and endlessly toxic and deadly cycle, which is being maintained
by our corporatocracies grip on world farming and one which is entirely, in my opinion,
unnecessary to boot. So, you’re going to take these two products and, as I said earlier,
it’s very important to use a warm jar with water and these items make up the basic recipe.
You’re going take your jar, and you are going to add 2 tablespoons per gallon of each ingredient
to your jar. Now, today, because the weather’s warm, the neem oil actually possesses good
viscosity and as you can see, it’s flowing pretty easily out of the container, but for
those of you in colder climates, or if you’ve stored your neem in a cooler environment,
where it can easily solidify in the bottle, it will be necessary for you to place the
neem bottle in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes first, so that you do have a good
flowing highly viscous substance. So, you see how I’m putting the neem into the water
there? I’m actually supposed to put the required 2 tablespoons of oil into the water. This
is just for demonstration, and look at that. It’s already kind of globulating. As you can
see, it won’t mix properly. Now, here’s where the magic happens. You’re going to take your
jar, you’re going to add in an equal quantity. In this case, 2 tablespoons. Just for the
videos sake, I’m going to approximate it, of Dr. Brauner’s salsud soap, and we’re going
to start mixing it up a little bit and I can see already it’s starting to form a cloud.
Now, we’re going to make a neem milk shake. Just shake it. See that? In seconds, you have
a wonderfully emulsified substance, which is going to be far more easily utilized and
fused across the plant tissue foliage, allowing for much better penetration and overall coverage.
Now, some portions additives that you can elect to use are products like rosemary and
clove oils. Even essential oils like peppermint, cinnamon, and orange oil, which should all
be judiciously applied, of course, and these can be useful in particularly stubborn bug
infestations. Rosemary, for instance is well suited to work extremely well against spider
mites, although, in my experience the basic soap and neem recipe has always sufficed for
me. Clove oil is also known as one of the only reliable killers of the mites own eggs,
whereas with the neem oil, the reproductive cycle will get disrupted, but it’s going to
take a few sprays applications for that to occur. So, it can be helpful to use these
other types of products if you really want to destroy the eggs, etc. Now, there’s quite
a few organic pest control products out there, with these kinds of oils. These particular
one here is made by OAP, organic ad products, and it’s called redbugs. Now, I’ve gone and
added a couple of capfuls of it for good measure to the soap and neem base, which I already
have here in a premixed jar, so that we can aggressively go after JK’s own bug colony
here. Now, today, I’m going to show you how I love to use this bug-blasting recipe with
my favorite ever machine. John’s very own commercial atomizing sprayer. This particular
unit is called the Hudson FOG. It’s very well built. It’s made by Hudson, who also happens
to make my favorite hose and sprayer, the chameleon sprayer. Now, this sprayer is a
wickedly handy tool for any serious gardener. I was a grower for years, and I trust this
machine implicitly. It just makes the time consuming job of spraying so much quicker,
and it allows for truly complete and total penetration of the plant canopy. Moreover,
the atomization of the emulsified neem soap blend renders a true fog particle sized delivery,
which helps to provide a better diffusion across more surface areas and it also delivers
the beneficial neem compounds in a kinder and gentler form to the plant leaves stomata,
or their pores. Indeed, neem is generally regarded as the least clogging of all horticultural
oils to leaf stomata’s, and I personally believe that some of neems known nutritional benefits
to plants, like increased nitrogen utilization, are actually made available to plant tissue
when applied this way in concert with the salsuds Teflon-like microionization, and delivered
in a truly atomized fog molecule. Now, how can I say this so confidently to you? Well,
when I used to grow, and when I was consistent with a neem-fogging schedule, my plants were
always clearly greener and overall certainly much healthier. It seemed to shine them up
nicely as well, and propose growers have used neem oil for the purpose of beautification
for decades, utilizing it as a secret weapon to help them win their rose contest. So, when
it comes to conducting a serious pest control campaign, you really wan tot employ the best
technology that’s available to you and for me, this machine is simply imperative. Now,
combining its use with the supreme recipe like neem and salsuds soap makes pest and
disease infestations a nonissue. Also, neem appears to bear no harm to bees or beneficial
insect populations, like the good bugs who are higher up the food chain, who are consuming
the leaf-munching bugs. Similarly, any neem oil residue that makes it’s way down to your
soil will biodegrade quickly and it will not pose a threat to beneficial soil organisms,
thereby aiding your soil and maintaining its critical web of microbial life. Now, always
remember to please use a different spray applicator device for compost tea than the unit that
you use to apply neem or these other horticultural oils. Now, this is because the delicate microbial
populations in your tea will easily become smothered by any leftover soap and oil residues
that are in your spray tank. I strongly recommend using a machine like this fogger, or at least
a good quality backpack type sprayer, for the neem applications, and alternating the
spraying with a unit like the chameleon hose end sprayer to shower your whole garden with
compost tea in between. You know, if fact, if you find yourself having it apply the neem
more than 2 times per week, because of serious pest or disease pressure, it’s a great idea
to spray with a compost tea, like for instance, our boogie brew, on alternating days. Now,
this will help in preventing too thick of a waxy oil coating that can build up on the
leaf surfaces, and it will also provide your plants with a multitude of the tea benefits
as well. The best thing about maintaining a regularly schedule foliar regime that alternate
between compost tea and neem sprays is that you will simply never experience healthier
plants, and it’s extremely cost effective to boot. The key is using great recipes. Be
that a quality compost tea or, in this case, a natural pesticide and fungicide with agent
like neem and the salsud soap, whilst implementing badass spraying technology, like the atomizing
Hudson fogger sprayer. If you do this regularly, your plants can’t help but dance. Now, let’s
get down to business, and let me show you how, just like al Pacino said so famously
in his movie Scarface, you know, ‘you want to mess with me, you say hello to my little
friend, you nasty bugs.’ So, I’m going o to add my neem milks contents to it. This is
the jar that I mixed earlier. Now, in this case the Hudson fog uses a 2-gallon base tank,
alright? So, I’ve actually used a total of 4 tablespoons each of salsud and neem oil.
So, it’s a good idea to actually fill the tank with plain water first, like I’ve done
here, and then add the mixture afterwards, alright? Because that allows the foam levels
to not come up too highly. You want to set the tank base down on a level flat surface
where you can easily see the connections and it’s very important to attack the motor carefully
and always check the entire circumferential area of the metal clamp first. Okay, very
important. Now, if it’s crooked, then you want to remove it and reattach in a neutral
and solid manner as possible. When in doubt, don’t take the chance of spraying and having
the unit detached itself on you, spilling the contents everywhere. Speaking of which,
it’s a good idea to wear work clothes because there’s always going to be some spillage,
although I can assure you the ingredients are, in my humble opinion, relatively benign
and totally harmless to human health. Unlike those evil chemical sprays, you certainly
don’t have to armor yourself in HAZMAT gear first to defend yourself against deadly poisons.
Now, here’s how I like to carry the Hudson FOG machine. With the strap on one shoulder
only and the air intake pointing away from my body. What this allows me to do is temporarily
pressurize the sprayer by blocking the air intake with my own hand if I need to, which
can help when the liquid that’s remaining in the sprayer starts to drop down to low
levels. Here’s a brief demo of what I’m talking about. So, I’ve holstered my machine properly,
I’ve check it’s connection, I’ve attached the power chord, in a responsible and tangle-free
manner, I have the perfect recipe inside which has been properly mixed first, and I’m ready
to go and lay waste to those bugs. Say hello to my little friend, you gnarly bugs. Here
we come with our clean green neem. Let’s really go and lay waste to those evil bugs that have
been infesting his tree collard leaves. Say hello to our little clean green neem machine
you evil bugs. Now, I’m also going to apply some clean neem magic to John’s squash leaves
over here, which have suffered of powdery mildew affliction, as we were talking about
earlier. The neem oil disrupts the mold’s spore’s hyphae back, or their structure, and
it helps tremendously to prevent reinfection with its supreme natural fungicide qualities.
Here we go. Thanks for checking out my boogie battle of the bug episode here on growingyourgreens.
I truly hope this helps to motivate you in maintaining a healthy pest and disease free
garden environment, and more importantly, I urge you all to speak out about the dangers
of chemical pesticides. Tell your garden acquaintances, your neighbors, your family and your friends
that there is a healthier and more cost-effective method instead. From JK’s own uber patch right
here in North Cal, this is boogies message to all growers that there are no excuses for
using poisonous warfare products in your gardens. Health is our only wealth and the planets
future lies in more responsible stewardship. Alright, so, I hope you guys enjoyed that
episode with Josh as a special guest. Hey, please post your comments down below. Let
me know if you wan tot see more of Josh, or less of Josh. I think he’s a good guy, and,
I mean, that’s the method I use to control pests in my garden, and I believe you should,
too. Now, yes, I have that, you know, commercial heavy duty Hudson fogger, and I love that
thing, man. I mean, if you have a small garden, you do not need to get the Hudson fogger,
unless you’re a guy and you like gadgets like I do, but if you have any size of raised beds
or, you know, acreage, it’s defiantly something you want to consider. Now, yes, they are expensive,
you know. A more easier way to do that without getting a Hudson sprayer, if you have a few
potted plants with bug issues, you know, just get s spray bottle. You could spray it in
a spray bottle. Make sure it’s shooken up well. Another way you could do it like Josh
said, het a backpack sprayer, or a pump sprayer. Also, like Josh said, you want to be sure
to have a different sprayer for your organic insect controls like the neem and Dr. Brauner’s
and the compost teas. Don’t, like, use the same sprayer. Definitely a good tip to remember,
and, you know, once again, I want to encourage you guys to start growing. Don’t let pest
issues get you down. After listening to this episode, you know one of the simplest and
easiest ways to deal with the majority of pests, you know, that I’ve used myself in
my garden with great success. If you’re interested in getting the Hudson sprayer and the clean
neem and Dr. Brauner’s, hey, please check the link below. I’ve negotiated a really special
deal for you guys to help save you guys some money and allow you to grow organically and
control your pests so that you and your family and the earth do not have to deal with the
repercussions of toxic chemicals on your food and putting it into the planet. Once again,
my name is John Kohler with We’ll see you next time, and remember; keep
on growing.

  1. hi is it suitable for jasmine and brinjal, if yes how many times I have to spray this with hoe many days of interval

  2. Can. Use this method on my herbs 🌿? Forgive me if he mentioned it and I missed that part.

  3. I'm trying to get rid or wireworms in my soil so I'm using potatoes on a stick to trap them. today I noticed a ton of teeny tiny white bugs all over the potatoes that are buried a few inches under the soil. any idea what they might be?

  4. Sorry to say I fund out that Dr. Bronner's SAL SUDS actually contains Sodium Lauryl Sulfate. … According to the Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database, SLS is a "moderate hazard" that has been linked to cancer, neurotoxicity, organ toxicity, skin irritation and endocrine disruption.

  5. I have all organic soil and plants. I have an issue starting with small flies.. what can I do to get rid of them?


  7. I've used cold pressed neem oil and even grow neem trees in my mango orchard. It has been effective against powdery mildew, mites and anthracnose. It does have a major downside, though. It attracts a small brown beetle, that resembles a lady bug, that is way worse than any of he afflictions I was treating. They eat the leaves, fruit, stems and even the younger bark. They have even killed a few of my orange and tangerine trees. They go after the neem trees too, but those trees are very robust, grow/spread like weeds and are hard to kill. I've even tested the other organic sprays I apply to see what was attracting them and found that they only like the trees that have the neem applied. So just know that neem works well to treat some problems but it can lead to others.

  8. Hey Mr. Greenman, I love what you do with your gardens, but do you have a natural way to kill bedbugs in your home? We need a cure fast. If you do plz send me an email at [email protected] and thanks for all your wonderful tips! PS I live in Mohave county, AZ.

  9. I would love to know if you have ever been to Warren County, TN. We are the nursery capital of the world,and I am proud of that but not proud , that we have many family members and friends that are dying from all different kinds of Cancers, I wish your videos were mandatory for our school systems to teach our kids to grow their own food in here in our county without all the chemicals that their parents have taught them even if they don't know it, and because kids learn from what they see, and if they see Mom and Dad getting rich from using these chemicals , and maybe not knowingly know it could be harmful to humans and some just not caring, but if their close family members get cancer I just wonder if they think about it then. peace, I love you, and love watching your videos and would love to watch you visiting Hollis and Nancy Homestead I think that is what it is called.But I pray The Good Lord keeps you close to Him always .

  10. The fat squirrels in my garden are driving me crazy. I have tried rat bait to no avail. They actually like it. They are eating my garden as if it were Hometown Buffett. How do you get rid of squirrels?

  11. More josh but there is no way I’m buying that machine. Sprayer will have to do. Thanks for the great video. Just what I needed to know

  12. Because Neem kills bees as well, what is the best timing to apply the spray to each plant (rather than broadcasting across all species simultaneously!)?

  13. After watching your video getting your girlfriend's patio garden going, I'm inspired to start my own patio garden. Among the many things you suggested that I'll follow, I fear attracting ants that will move from the vegetables to my apartment. What could I do to prevent ants?

  14. A dollar for every snail in my garden would look like a democrat spending plan. Oh, and the bugs on the tree collards are Harlequin bugs. They love to eat regular collards and kale too. Nice infomercial for boogie boy though.

  15. Yeah, it's old. But timeless; get yourself a copy of " The Secret Life Of Plants" and even more so, it's sequel: "Secrets Of The Soil" (Homeopathic soil treatments! That work! Crazy well! WAY bigger, healthier yields! Seriously!)

  16. More Josh is great! Love learning about this stuff! Have a question about other pests this solution will treat? Webworms???

  17. Does Neen oil kill leaf miners ,inside the leaf ? It's the first year I have had a bug problem…the whole neighborhood seems to have the problem .We had a warm winter this year. I wonder if that had anything to do with it .

  18. Super interesting and informative, but found an Indian lady on here that gave 3 great natural tips in under 3 minutes.

  19. Joseph was able to put away SEVEN YEARS of food away in 7 years without the stupid modern ag business!

  20. I hope with your info as well as the Boogie Brew guy Josh. I can grow nice natural non pest infested California Tomatos also πŸ™‚ I bought myself some 100% pure Neem oil from my local grow store. Now Im going to order some plant safe mild natural soap. Ive been pretty careful not to use bad chemicals so far so I dont really want to go dumping any old dish soap onto my plants at this point x)

  21. would neem oil be good to use on herbs like basil? i noticed mine are being attacked by leaf miners, tried pinching them off but i dont think i got to it in time.

  22. I love dr bronners. But beware of the freemasonic vatican world government/religion propaganda. It lists of such great folks like the rabbi hillel who taught jesus and the infamous Margaret Sanger and a few names later, sovereign grand commander freemason and kkk member and Luciferian albert pike! As greats!!! 0.o. It changed ownership obviously. Good product evil messages. .

  23. Being an "Avid Intensive Gardener" and firmly believing in "Raised Bed/Container" growing organically, as seen on my own You Tube Channel…"Gardening With Vincenzo" and am always looking for techniques/designs/info from other like minded "Garden Gurus"
    Thanks for your insight and info and sharing your expertise !

  24. Winner of a video, I been tryin to find out about "plant organic vegetable" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about – Nonannah Hanulian Future – (search on google ) ? Ive heard some super things about it and my cousin got amazing success with it.

  25. Nice propaganda piece. We could have done without the stupid ass mention of Nazis or completely irrelevant mention of Monsanto and chemical warfare. This is where skip past any video I stumble across that's posted by you. Shameless.

  26. Thanks for the info How to kill worms please they are eat my plants cannabis, tomatoes, cucumbers everything,tried neem oil but it does not work for worms i am in the tropics

  27. Yes this was great information he should continue todo his job is such a blessing to know our health our foods it depends how we take care our foods great work keep it up

  28. Does it have to be sal suds for the soap because I have peppermint on hand. I prefer to use that. Thanks for your videos

  29. off course again it's not about healthy products, but about selling products. It's not about sustainability, but about profit. Not very informative and certainly not contributing to society

  30. I would recommend if you wanted to speak with an entomologist please say β€œinsect” instead of bugs. I love ur channel! πŸ€—

  31. I tried to watch the video but after 5 minutes of waiting for this black screen with a ringing circle to change the video, I've given up. I've never seen this happen before and there's nothing wrong with my equipment or my internet.

    I imagine that it's trying to load up some annoying survey or an ad and it's bugged… Maybe we need to spray YouTube with some neem oil. Chuckles.

    I'm not sure if you mentioned this but it is an imperative to keep neem oil at no more than 3% of your solution and make absolutely certain that you do not spray flowers because it can harm pollinators if the above-listed criteria are not met.

  32. growing in good soils and having healthy plants is the most important, but pests are always going to come. to make it very easy for myself I bought fogger and put nicotine and water in it for pests or potassium bicarbonate for fungi.
    I literally never have problems. πŸ™‚

  33. I have 5 hectares of land full of ants. This your is Antmogeddon. They nest in the roots of Birch and Pine and farm the aphids up above. I have hardly seen a Ladybird ths year (very few bees as well). I have blasted the ants off but they are back in an hour. Cinnamon seems to stop the larger ants but smaller ones have no problem. The sugar and borax traps seem to work well but I don't want to put them near food plants. I have aslo used Diatomaceous earth (which is kind of expensive). After a heavy rain (once a month here) all the work is gone and you have to re-apply. The ants are even all over the stinging nettles!
    If you see an ant on a plant, don't ignore it. Its there for a reason. I didnt realise at first and lost 3 apple trees and quite a few young birches, plus the growing process is severely stunted under this constant attack.
    PlusI am surrounded by farmers who use Round-up – maybe I'm getting all ther bad guys?

  34. Skip to 10:25 to spare yourself the overly verbose, unrelated info and lecture. Or skip the whole thing to find a better video.

  35. I used pure neem oil from an indian store and dr bronner soap on my kale that had caterpillars …. they smiled at me! ….. I got better weapons now
