Our Bug-Buster Blast recipe was adapted from Jane’s Delicious Garden. This is our version of Jane’s recipe for keeping bugging friends away from your plants. Ideal for organic farming fundis.

2 onions
1 head of garlic
6 chilies


  1. Chop the onions, garlic and chillies up carefully, place them into a pot with about 3 litres of water and heat to boiling point.
  2. Then let the mixture simmer for a few hours.
  3. Once cooled, strain and fill up a spray bottle/s with the remaining liquid. Leave room to add 2 tbs of cooking oil or a squirt of eco-friendly dishwashing soap for better results.
  4. Shake well before use.

The best time to spray your plants or veggies is early in the morning or during the evening, after watering (not before). Remember to spray the underside of leaves too. Repeat every few days then follow with maintenance sprays every 10 days to keep the bug(gers) away. Get the kids involved and let them spray the vegetable patch.

Happy spraying!
