Another frugal, vegetable plot tip for you. If the insects are winning and your soap spray just isn’t strong enough to cope with a massive infestation why not try a nasty nicotine spray insecticide? Smoking may be bad for us, but it can be even worse for insect pests in the garden.
Nicotine spray is a very effective insecticide against many pests including weevils, caterpillars and leaf miners. It is strong though so beware of using too liberally as it will endanger helpful predator insects too.
Do not use on any members of the tomato/potato family. Tobacco is related and can pass on viral diseases to its relations. Do not use on the edible parts of crops within one month of harvesting.
Nicotine is extracted from tobacco or related Nicotiana species and is one of the oldest botanical insecticides in use today. It's also one of the most toxic to warm-blooded animals and it's readily absorbed through the skin.
How might I be exposed to thallium? Eating food contaminated with thallium may be a major source of exposure for most people. Breathing workplace air in industries that use thallium. Smoking cigarettes. Living near hazardous waste sites containing thallium (may result in higher than normal exposures). Touching or, for children, eating soil contaminated with thallium. Breathing low levels in air and water.
