Friends have been telling me to water down some dish soap and spray it on my plants to keep bugs from eating them. I did not get to try this out, I just moved into this house in January, and the first garden season was a bust for me . I have a canister of seven dust that I used on my three Jalepeno plants (thats all the garden I had before moving). It worked well, but it is poison! I would like to know if anyone here has actually tried dish soap as a bug spray in the garden. Did it work? Does it affect the taste of the food?
