7. Get Rid of Mites with Cayenne Pepper
Keep mites from ravaging your garden in the same way that they ganged up to destroy this poor Sexton Beetle by creating a home remedy from a quart of water, three drops of ivory soap and two tablespoons of cayenne pepper or hot pepper sauce. You will need to let this particular mixture sit overnight before it will be ready to use. Shake it often while spraying the mixture onto your plants from above. Mites and many other insects will cease to bother your garden after you finish each application.
