Hi,

 

Again i purchased cocopeat from you at lalbagh and i have planted veg in almost 12 to 14 pots , i had sowed the seeds of  spinach, cucumber, watermelon, pumpkin, tomatoes etc most of them are sprouted and growing, spinach is the fastest guy. 

How to prevent pest with homemade pesticides please comment with details

I have had good success with neem oil. there are recipes of ginger, garlic and chilli, onion sprays available. check them out. i dont use them thought. keep the plants far apart so that they dont touch each other. control ants.

the only problem with ants is that they will bring aphids and mealy bugs along with them. Also, they eat away seeds that are for germination. I have seen hardware stores selling citrnolla oil Cashew Nut Shell Oil ( CNSL) used to repel mites in ply woods. I suppose that should work for ants as well. yeah that product is organic. check it out and let me know.
