Gnats and stink bugs: Some cures
These are the only 2 pests that have been a problem, and the infestations started recently.
These methods work, because I used them to good success.
For gnats, get a small glass jar and put in about 1/2″ of apple cider vinegar, and add a drop of dish soap. The dish soap breaks the surface tension of the water, and the gnats drown.
For stink bugs, a war I am fighting with them now because they are somehow getting inside a screened in deck, I use water and Dawn dish soap (concentrate). Add a couple good squirts to a gallon of water, and spray the bugs. It works on contact, usually in a few seconds.
With the exception of vine borers in my zucchinis, I had no other insect problems this year.
I hear this also works for wasps, yellow jackets etc but I think I’ll stick to wasp killing sprays for that.
