So I had some bugs on a couple girls I had outdoors...... Odd critters that were making holes everywhere and fast!

My two precious babies were in trouble

I got a not-so-bright idea that Dawn dish soap and a sprayer at night should do the trick. Treated them both at night after sundown two nights in a row.


Morning of day two.......

I've used a mild soap spray on about every thing i've ever grown. The bugs will be dead by Dawn.... :slide: The only thing you didn't do was get up in the morning and wash the dead bugs and soap off with a strong spray...... I did it that way because i don't like the taste of soap... Not as a consideration for the plants..

The one step that gets left out on every video I ever see about how to get rid of bugs and PM on YouTube. Yes those methods of soap or soap and borax or even diluted milk do work, but you have to wash it all off the following morning ASAP. trust me, your not the 1st Richard Cranium to have ever don't that.(speaking from experience):19:

I did the EXACT same thing last year on my first grow....saw the bugs and panicked... went online in search of a solution...not realizing the soaps role in the concoction... I used Mr. Clean with Frebreeze (ya, ya I know)... the leaves all turned brown and died.
After a few days of denial I pulled all the dead leaves off and left it...within a week new green growth came again...and fast...I ended up losing 2 of the 4 plants but got an impressive yield even after this catastrophe.

This year I am okay with a few bug holes here and there. My plants grow quicker than the bugs can eat them....
I do use slug bait
