Bugs are eating my veggies before I can get to them. Is there something I can safely spray them with, that isn’t toxic to us when we eat them? They are eating not only the leaves, but also the veggies themselves. Thank you so much.
There are several organic options that are made for garden plants. The two most common include the GARDEN DEFENSE WITH NEEM and the 3 IN ONE CONCENTRATE. Both of these have a short one day to harvest wait period which means you can spray either right up to the day before you intend on picking your fruit or vegetable since their residual is so safe and short lived.
As for the difference between the two; the Neem is highly active on most insects and tends to repel them for up to a week. It’s really just for insect control where as the 3 in 1 has both a Miticide and a Fungicide included so it covers more problems common to the garden. Use it if you find either to be an issue during the garden growing season.
