It also works good in a pan of water to drop unwanted bugs in like Box elder bugs and Japanese beetles and Asian beetles. They do not like it. Also mixed in water in a spray bottle and sprayed on houseplants to get rid of Aphids and spider mites works wonders. Spray all sides of the leaves and stems and it kills the bugs. About 1 teaspoon to a large spray bottle and soak the plants leaves and repeat as necessary. The eggs will hatch out in a few days and reapply.
Plant containers. These came from the garden store with plants in them last year. We save them and plant seeds we dried from the vegetables we harvested last year. They are red and green peppers also three kinds of tomatoes. So the potting soil is the only thing that cost me money for my garden this year.
So many things have many uses. Recycle and re purpose things saves the landfills and also saves your wallets. Hope these things help. Chris
