    Does anyone have any ideas for a good organic pest spray? I have used malathon in the past but I know it is very dangerous the neighborhood I live in now has lots of kids and anamials. I would like to try and use something that would not hurt them.I also have to birds myself so if I were to get it on me I dont want to harm them. My wife wants me to spray becasue she has seen spiders and a coulpe of ants. Any help would be great.

    first you will create a vacuum and then the first bug to come along will fill that vacuum. natural pest control?? try spiders they control pest like flys mosquito's and gnats.ants?? try a vacuum= no food and they move on!!

    most organic gardeners try not to kill, and instead try to nurture the beneficial insects

    a little DE should kill ants, or mint oil

    maybe you should educate her on the benefit's of spiders
