Not sure I am using this properly-I just registered. What is the recipe to make your own concentrate to use in the Ortho "Dial a Spray" sprayer? I understand the 1 gal. mix recipe. However, to make the concentrate I am sure the formula is different.

Also, what is the best way to protect against sub-t potato cutworms, and also, corn earworms?

Garrett Juice Concentrate
The ready-to-use solution should not have more than 2 ounces of orange oil per gallon.

1 gallon Compost Tea
1 pint Cider Vinegar
1 pint Liquefied Seaweed
1 pint Blackstrap Molasses

Mix all ingredients together. For spraying, use 1 ½ cups of concentrate per 1 gallon of water.
*1 pint = 2 cups = 16 ounces

Thank you for the prompt response on the concentrate. I do still have the concerns about control of "sub-t potato cutworms" and "corn earworms". Thank you for your great help.

Leslie,

How long will this concentrate last? what is the best container? and finally, what is the coverage area? I understand this is good for the lawn?

Thanks
