Ecological repellents and fungicides for plants

Fungi are very common, especially if you live in a humid place because it is the ideal climate for them to proliferate, affecting plants and causing diseases. The same goes for many pests and insects.

You can use a chemical repellent or fungicide to attack plant pests and fungi, but my recommendation is to try natural products as they are less harmful when it comes to affecting the overall health of the plant. Chemical fungicides can weaken the defenses of plants, but not ecological ones, which also do not harm the environment.

There are many homemade and ecological repellents and fungicides that you can design yourself using products that are cheap and within reach.

everyday products

To eliminate aphids, mites and mealybugs buy paraffin oil and mix 10 cc in 10 liters of water. Then apply it and you will eliminate them quickly because the oil prevents the insects from breathing.
Also close at hand, garlic works wonders for your plants by killing mites and aphids as well as bacteria. Mixed with water – at a rate of 10 g per liter – it is a very effective homemade repellent.


If you detect powdery mildew disease, buy micronized sulfur and mix 80 grams in 10 liters of water or sprinkle it on the affected plant. Sodium bicarbonate is another great product to attack pests and plant diseases. We have already talked about its powers so do not forget to use it in cases of powdery mildew, mildew or anthracnose.

Another effective remedy against aphids, mites, and cochineal is Wormwood . You just have to let the plant leave and then mix 30 grams in 1 liter of water. Let stand and filter and then spray the affected plant. This solution is also very effective if you detect the presence of ants.

Following this natural line, if you want to always have a repellent at hand, grow nettle as this plant helps eliminate red spider mites and aphids. You can prepare an ecological repellent by mixing 500 g of dry nettles in 20 liters of water and letting it macerate for 15 days and then filtering. When you need a repellent, mix one liter of the fermented nettles in two liters of water.
