In Rancho Delicioso we are experimenting with several recipes in order to create organic products to treat plagues from various insect pests, or to prevent them. We believe that there are harmless ways to treat these frequent problems of the gardens, rather than using chemicals. We came across to this recipe to create a powerful insecticide and fungicide, and we decided to try it. Next we present you how to make it.


Organic insecticide recipeFor 120 litres:

    – 1 kg of garlic
    – 1 kg of hot pepper
    – 1 kg of ginger
    – 1 kg of onion
    – 2 litres of molasses
    – 2 litres of banana vinegar
    – 2 litres of alcohol
    – 2 litres of mountain microorganisms
    – Aromatic herbs: basil, oregano, rosemary, mint, etc.


Chop the garlic, onion, ginger, hot pepper and the herbs, and then blend everything together. Next we add the molasses, the vinegar, the alcohol and the microorganisms. We add water to complete the 120 litres. We cover the mix and leave it rest for 15 days. After that, it will be ready to use, but we have to be careful and apply little quantities on the plants first for a trial. If it is too strong, then we can add more water.
