natural solution to repel insects from my vegetables ?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I grow green bean, cantaloupe, watermelon and cucumber. All the leafs are eating by a lot of orange bugs. Do you have any natural and easy solution to repel them ?

 

Thanks

I have those bugs (weevils?) also, not at the moment but they can be troublesome. I tried applying wood vinegar, alternating with Neem oil, every week. That worked pretty well. The odour keeps them away and there is a toxic effect. The bugs don't stay long enough on the leaf for them to be killed by anything stronger I think.

Chickens will probably eat them....and a net (from ikea) will keep all bugs out...
