Is there a gardener in the world who hasn't had to deal with insects and other tiny nibblers infesting a favorite plant? We all want these pests gone, but we also want to use only environmentally friendly, safe insecticides and repellents. Well, here is the best solution we have found to both problems: all-natural Captain Jack's, made with spinosad.

With what?, you may ask? Well, spinosad is a natural insecticide made from a soil-borne bacterium (Saccharopolyspora spinosa, if we want to get technical about it). Its pest repellent qualities were first discovered in the 1980s, when this bacterium was found in crushed sugarcane in an abandoned distillery in the Caribbean. It immediately proved to be super-effective against thrips, which is still its primary commercial use today.

But getting rid of thrips is just the beginning here. Captain Jack's Deadbug Brew will also eradicate bagworms, borers, beetles, caterpillars, codling moths, gypsy moths, loopers, leaf miners, tent caterpillars, and more! It's not an all-purpose insecticide -- some bugs will definitely not be affected by it -- but it kills a huge range of the most common pests affecting our indoor and outdoor plants. And it does it so safely that you can even spray it on edible crops right up to the day of harvest!

Captain Jack's Deadbug Brew comes to us from Bonide, a trusted name in pest repellents. This 1-quart bottle is ready to spray -- no mixing or diluting needed! -- and safe for humans, animals, plants, and the environment. We recommend that you spray the garden in late afternoon or early evening for best results, following package instructions. Even if you have an infestation of a particular bug, Captain Jack's will take control! We've been very impressed by the results -- tell us what you think after trying it this season!
