Hello, I'm Louise Hodges of GreenBugAllNatural.com. And what we're going to be talking about today, is bugs from your potting soil, eating you plant roots. That's obviously not acceptable, you've gone through all this work to create this beautiful container pot. And if the bugs from what you purchased in your potting soil, are eating your plants roots. You've got to do something about it. So, what I have done, is created my own concoction that's going to take care of those bugs in the soil. So, I've gathered my supplies, which I'll go over with you, now. First, you'll need an empty spray bottle, this is about a cup of water. I have essential oil of peppermint, some liquid dish soap, some cayenne pepper, and a funnel. So that we can mix it altogether. I've put all of those s ingredients in this container pot, and I'm going to shake it up. The soap and the cayenne pepper, and the peppermint oil will kill a variety of the different bugs that might be in this potting soil ,but harmless to your plants. So, all you have to do is, apply it to your soil, which is just a matter o spraying it through. Once again, it's not going to hurt the plant material at all. You just want to make sure it reaches the soil. And if you want to, you can actually open it up and pour some of this into the soil to make sure it really penetrates. So, if you have bugs from your potting soil that are eating your plant roots. You could worry no more, because we've figured out how to take care of it. I'm Louise Hodges of GreenBugAllNatural.com, thank you for watching.
