I live in Florida, USA and have an herb garden. Something is eating the basil and sage and I don’t want to use chemicals because I also have butterfly gardens near; how can I make a natural simple soap spray that works??

For a soap spray to work you have to see the insect and spray it on it. Your culprits are probably earwigs or slugs and snails that come out at night to eat in safety. Diatomaceous earth or a neem spray work best for them. Bo to our web-site at to the Q&A section, type in "pests" and check the articles for specific instructions on how to use these organic controls.
