    Arrow Homemade organic pesticides

    Homemade organic pesticide Learn about using homemade organic pesticides that farmers have known about for centuries. These are items that many people have right in their home or that can be purchased inexpensively.Sponsored LinksDo you ever wish that you could make your own organic pesticides? Well, here is your organic pesticide cookbook! You will find many solutions and concoctions in this article that can help you keep the bugs out of your garden. Yes, you could use those nasty pesticides that you see in your local hardware, but why when homemade organic choices can be much cheaper and easier to use? If you are like many gardeners today, you want no harmful chemicals anywhere near your plants. Try some of these unique bug-busterrecipes.1. Tobacco or Nicotine Spray:This mixture is great for combating many different types of bugs, but especially caterpillars, aphids, and many types of those nasty worms.What you need:1 cup of tobacco1 gallon of waterPut the tobacco into the container of water. Allow the mixture to set for approximately 24 hours. After it has stood for a day, check the color. It should be the shade of weak tea. If it is too dark, just dilute it with water until it looks right.*Warning: Don't use this solution on peppers, tomatoes, eggplants, or any other member of the solanaceous family. Tobacco chemicals can kill these types of plants!2. Soap Spray:Another way to stop the slugs is with soapy water. That's right, you can just use your old, dirty dishwater! Collect some of the water in a pan and pour it into a watering can or even use a pitcher to pour it over the plants. This works really well on hostas and mums, but also can be used on other hardy plants. Many bugs do not like their lunch spoiled by a soapy aftertaste! For a stronger solution, mix 3 Tablespoons of liquid detergent into a gallon of water, I prefer Dawn, but any will do. Use this weekly.3. Alcohol Spray:This spray really is great for houseplants. This especially works on meal bugs.1/2 cup of alcohol2-3 tablespoons of dry laundry soap1 quart of warm waterMix all ingredients and spray immediately. You don't have to let this set, but you can't store it either. This solution must be made fresh for each use.4. Salt Spray:This solution is used for cabbageworms and spider mites.2 tablespoons of salt1 gallon of waterJust mix and spray!5. Garlic Spray:Here is the recipe for a garlic spray that fights slugs too. Slugs must not like eating Italian. To make this smelly spray, use the following list of ingredients:1 garlic bulb1 quart of water1 medium onion1 tablespoon of cayenne pepper1 tablespoon liquid dish soapCrush the garlic, mincing it fine. Add finely chopped onion to the mixture, while adding the rest of the ingredients except the soap. Wait an hour before adding the soap to the mixture. The spicy ingredients must sort of stew or steep, almost like tea. After an hour, add the soap and your non-toxic spray is ready to use! This can be stored in the fridge for a week.6. Buttermilk and Flour Spray:Garlic spray is great for getting rid of cutworms, wireworms, whiteflies, and slugs too.What you need:1 pint of water1/4 cup of dish liquid2 teaspoons of paraffin6 tablespoons of chopped garlicSoak the whole garlic in the liquid paraffin for at least 24 hours. After a day, add the dish liquid and water to the mixture. Remember to shake it very well. Strain the solution and store it in a glass jar. This lasts around a week.7. Dead Bug Spray:Another way to beat the bug problem is by taking some dead carcasses of the same insects and mixing them in water. Use one pint of water and 1/2 cup of slug carcasses. Although this is rather unpleasant, it works. Would you want to be picnicking in this situation? Most of us wouldn't. Here is how you make the insect carcass solution:Blend the water and insects until mixed well and then put into a plastic container or glass jar. To use this, pout into a sprayer and squirt a few drops on the affected plants. You can freeze this mixture for storage.*Beware: Do NOT use flies, ticks, fleas, or mosquitoes in this solution! These insects carry many communicable human diseases!8. Spearmint-Hot Pepper-Horseradish Spray:This works on many different kinds of bugs- too many to list!1/2 cup of red peppers (hot)water (read below)1/2 cup of fresh spearmint1/2 cup horseradish (root and leaves)2 tablespoons of liquid detergent1/2 cup green onion topsMix all of the spearmint leaves, horseradish, onion tops and peppers together with enough water to cover everything. Strain the solution. After mixing all of these, add a half-gallon of water and add the detergent also. To use this solution, mix 1/2 gallon of this solution with 1/2 gallon of water. You can use this to spray almost any plant safely. Store this mixture for a few days in a cool environment.By using household items, we can keep our garden free from pests. Toxins and harmful chemicals do not have to be part of your landscape. Hopefully, this organic cookbook of sorts will help you do just that!

    Subject : Chinese Technology based Bio Gas Fertilizer and Power Plants



    Wuxi Kingship Import & Export Co. Ltd. is one of the leading private sector companies in China involved in manufacturing and trading in wide range of industrial machinery for food processing, renewable energy products like vacuum tube solar water heaters and wind turbines, agriculture tractors etc.



    Kingship established India Branch Office in March 2004 after obtaining Government of India approval for promoting business for industrial machinery and products. Since then, we have successfully introduced three major products to the Indian market for different sectors like Vacuum Tube Solar Water Heaters under Renewable Energy, Coal Gasifiers as energy saving equipment to replace Furnace Oil for Reheating Furnace in the Steel Rolling Mills and Mini Tractor 18HP for Agriculture Sector specially for small landholding farmers. All the three products based on low cost Chinese technology are suitable for Indian conditions.



    For Renewable Energy products, number of leading Indian companies marketing ETC based solar water heaters are sourcing solar water heaters – both domestic and industrial type from us as OEM manufacturers. These Indian associates have got their companies enlisted with Ministry of New and Renewable Energy based on testing of our systems from accredited test research centres.



    We are the first company to supply and install coal gasifier to Steel Rolling Mills in Punjab which has been selected by UNDP/Ministry of Steel as model unit. Based on our compact design and good performance, more and more customers are switching over to coal gasification to replace expensive furnace oil.



    Kingship Mini 18HP Tractor is the first Chinese Tractor which has been tested and approved by Indian Test Centre namely International Centre for Automotive Technology, Haryana, India. Through our Indian collaborator, we are confident of helping the farmers who own small landholding by offering them low cost alternative including transport.



    We are now exploring possibility of introducing Chinese technology based commercial Bio Gas Fertilizer Plants / Power Generation Plants upto capacity 200m3, 500m3, 1000m3 and 1500m3 to the Indian market. We will be grateful if you kindly pass on our company profile to interested investors who would like to enter into this business.



    Some of the technical features of our technology is as follows :



    1 Bionic dynamic fermentation;

    2 No floating carapace dregs;

    3 Reuse the waste heat of jardine liquid and multi-function;

    4 Collect biogas with distributed net

    5 Self-calefacient and heated by solar energy;

    6 Hydraulic-seizure(for garbage);

    ⑦ To ferment of low pressure and provide biogas of pressure

    8 Biogas liquid photosynthetic purification;

    9 Gas storage of dry soft capsule;

    10 Pass in and out materials open.



    Therefore, this new technics have solved series of problems, such as biogas ferment in constant temperature , floating carcasses, the dregs, garbage sorting, low rate of gad production, high costs, deal with biogas liquid, high cost of construction, short life and difficult to pass in and out materials, which make the straw, garbage, cow dung and drug residues, It can made many industrial and agricultural pollution organic waste which difficult to deal with biogas processing ,such as straw, garbage, cattle dung, medicine residue and so on, and opened up a new way for the recycling and management of these industrial and agricultural waste resources.



    Detailed information is being prepared and will be sent to you shortly.



    Looking forward to your kind assistance and help.
