something obvious about spraying tomatoes, peppers, and cukes...

ive never been much of a insecticide user and i never use anything but organic, cheap sprays, and then only inconstantly. this year i bought myself a great new sprayer and vowed to spray every day, and i've stuck to the regime--a mix of insectidical soap, neem, and BT. every once and a while i spray some copper, too.

for the first time ever, my vines are still really healthy and producing (even full-sized tomatoes, but mostly smaller-bodied) and not a single stink bug or pickle worm out there. i still have some fungal issues, but, hey, it's florida.

so, there you go. if you spray thoroughly and regularly, it really works!

it's always easier to prevent an infestation than to cure one.
