I am wanting to make a pepper spray to repel mice.

I have the peppers, how do I make a spray?

Thanks in advance!

Use the hottest pepper powder you can get, or ground up fresh ones, and soak in water. Add some liquid soap and oil, like canola oil as a spreader-sticker. Use garlic powder to add more power to it.

Mice traps work faster, and they are classically organic too! (LOL)

I've done the traps. They don't work. Those little buggers can make more than I can trap. I used the sticky traps until I bought one of those plug in repellants. It worked for a long while and now doesn't seem effective. I bought another to see if maybe the previous had quit working. I am hoping this or the peppers will keep them away. Thanks for telling me how to prepare the peppers!

I was searching for this topic and saw the one for "pepper spray". Is it the same (or made the same) as pepper tea? How do you make "pepper tea" and what kind of peppers do you use? A complete recipe would be most helpful.

I want to move my potted plants indoors for the winter, but want to make sure I've gotten rid of all the pests that may have taken up residence in the soil during the summer. I thought if I flushed the plants with "pepper tea" it would do the job. Any comments or suggestions?

A soil drench of 1 cup compost tea, 1 cup molasses & 1/2 cup orange oil (or 1 oz. d-limonene concentrate Orange TKO) mixed with a gallon of water, which is essentially the fire ant drench, should rid your soil of most pests that you would find unappealing indoors. Pepper tea should chase away the ones hiding in the foliage. I've used this method to very good effect several times.
