Garlic Wash – another useful organic pest control product

By | December 9, 2014

The benefits of Garlic

Garlic preparations have been used for years by commercial growers for deterring plant pests – they are even used in the propagation area at Kew Gardens for keeping aphids away. If the preparation is extracted so as to  maximise the sulphur content, a garlic spray will stimulate growth and improve resistance to insect pests and fungal diseases, as well as driving away  insects that are repelled by the smell of garlic.

Garlic Wonder

If you use garlic spray on any crop  it will not affect the taste of vegetables or fruit, and won’t  leave unpleasant residues.

It operates in 3 separate ways :

By acting as a bio-stimulant – strengthening the plant
By acting  as a disenfectant – killing bacteria and fungi
By acting as a deterrent to drive insects away
We recommend Garlic Wonder   for deterring ants and wireworms . It’s also has been reported to reduce aphids, blackfly, carrotfly, red spider mite, scale insects, thrips and whitefly.
