Mad Dog to the rescue once again!
We’re not making this up.
Imagine you’re sitting in a park somewhere, munching on, well, whatever you brought with you – and we have some ideas on that – when, suddenly, pepper spray permeates the air around you.
You’d leave, right?
You’d be a little pissed off, of course, but you would get up and leave. Because unpleasant. (Okay, fecking unbelievably painful and irritating.)
The same principle works with insects – and even squirrels, deer, and the neighbor’s cat. A little pepper spray will do you.
Now, you don’t need commercial-grade pepper spray in your backyard. And, in fact, we advise against it, unless you’re physically threatened. But you can make your own pepper protection that drives away the bugs, but not the fun times.
Defend your yard: make your own capsaicin pepper spray
All you need to do is add a few drops of Mad Dog extract or hot sauce or a teaspoon or two of chili pepper powder to 2 cups of water. Give it a good stir, then pour it into a spray bottle (which, you should carefully mark as potent as hell, don’t spray on skin!) and you’re all set.
There are those that find a tablespoon of dish-washing liquid helps the mixture to stick to plant leaves to deter the nastiest of bugs (like aphids and spider mites) that love chewing your precious flower and vegetable leaves.
In any case, a little spray on the leaves is all you need to keep insects from enjoying their picnic in your park and if you’re battling some ground pests (cabbage maggots, anyone?) you can sprinkle a little chili pepper powder around the bases – or the areas – you want to protect,
It’s really that simple. Of course, the biggest trouble will be parting with your precious Mad Dog supply. So, we suggest topping up and topping up before it’s too late.
Need to defend your garden?
Mad Dog is totally the way to do it. It’s a hell of a lot cheaper and safer than store-bought gardening sprays and, you’re hardly limited to using these products in your garden; you should be dousing your food with these hot sauces… cause they hurt so good.
