    I will be spraying CT and a garlic pepper mixture for insect control. Will the garlic pepper spray in the lines of my sprayer, if not cleaned prior to application of CT, affect the microbes at all? Or is it best to have a separate line for spraying those type of products?

    Thanks.

    Tim wilson will have some nice and very inexpensive microscopes available soon, you could look before and after

    HHHMMMM...... Garlic and peppers reminds me of a pizza I made recently.

    Be very careful with the garlic spray

    It attracts Italians................ I won't even use the smiley face because I have used that joke so many times

    My hunch and hunch only is that it probably won't make a big difference.

    There is a guy Jeff local to you, that you know, that mixes that stuff together and has a very satisfied customer base. ask him

    You know, and I know Jeff is not making his own CT. He is not even applying compost. He is strictly a product guy. Nothing wrong with that, but different circumstances. I will be on the other hand brewing my tea's and some other concoctions and just trying to make sure I am not back tracking. Thanks.

    Good for you, let's brew some teas. The only way you will know for sure is by using a scope or sending samples out to SFI
