Thanks. That's what we were hoping for - instructions! Sounds easy enough.

Hi Biigblue,
You want to alternate applications so the bugs don't get used to one thing. Doing this right requires some planning...and you can still use the AEM1 you've already made.

Yes, this helps to prevent building up of resistance. This is taught in integrated pest management classes (IPM) as well as organic pest management classes.

I haven't been to any classes lately either. That must make me classless like you. Nice to be in such good company.

Well, I guess I should feel a little proud of myself. Check out your local organic farmers association. They usually have meetings and classes that are really informative. If you want to get some awesome information for low cost, I suggest subscribing to Acres USA: Acres U.S.A. -- A Voice for Eco-Agriculture

Bugs in a blender are good pesticides, too. Bug Juice.

Gotta have a dedicated blender for it, too, LOL!

Yet another good reason to hit the yard sales.......LOL I too have a separate blender, measuring spoons etc that are all marked for the garden. Most are used I picked up on the cheap. I just sterilized everything and then marked it for use for my gardens.
