Goodbye to bedbugs in the garden, other than chemical insecticides: they float immediately


Introduction: Bedbugs in the garden can be a nuisance, causing harm to your plants. In this recipe, we’ll create a natural repellent to help protect your plants from these pests, without resorting to chemical insecticides.


  • 1 cup of neem oil
  • 1 tablespoon of liquid dish soap
  • 1 gallon of water
  • Spray bottle


  1. Start by mixing 1 cup of neem oil with 1 tablespoon of liquid dish soap in a container. Neem oil is a natural insect repellent that can help deter bedbugs.
  2. Add the neem oil and dish soap mixture to a gallon of water. Mix it thoroughly to ensure the ingredients are well combined.
  3. Transfer the prepared solution into a clean spray bottle. This will make it easy to apply to your plants.
  4. Choose a time when the sun is not too intense, preferably in the early morning or late afternoon, to avoid burning your plants. Also, make sure it’s not a windy day.
  5. Spray the neem oil solution generously on the leaves, stems, and around the base of your plants. Be thorough, as bedbugs can hide in various parts of the plant.
  6. Reapply the solution every 7-10 days or after rainfall to maintain its effectiveness. Continue this routine throughout the growing season to keep bedbugs at bay.


  • Neem oil is effective against a variety of garden pests, including bedbugs, and it won’t harm beneficial insects or your plants.
  • The dish soap helps the solution adhere to the plants and insects, increasing its effectiveness.
  • Always perform a patch test on a small section of your plants to ensure they don’t have an adverse reaction to the neem oil mixture.
  • Keep the solution out of direct sunlight and store it in a cool, dark place when not in use.
