Cheap substitute for Surround?
I just realized that the poultice I use on my horses, called Ice Tite, has only two ingredients. Kaolin clay and peppermint. I think it may be a great substitute for the insecticide Surround. You can get it at most Tack stores. I know Desert Saddlery in Gilbert carries it. I need to figure out how much to mix with water. I'm assuming it would be good to strain before putting in the sprayer.
Who knows, the peppermint might make it work better? Thinking I'll try it on a single squash as a test if I get squash bugs again.
