homemade insecticides
« on: October 21, 2010, 20:52 »
Could anyone clear up this anomaly for me?I would like to be as organic as possible yet it seems I cannot make my own insecticide with natural plant matter.Is this  a joke?I found one recipe telling me what the latin name of the plant was,how to make the greenfly spray and then,just to make me worry about Big Brother,the sentence`` It is illegal to produce and use insecticides without being licenced by Her Majesty's government.``

My question is ,why? Is this in case I make gallons of the stuff and start to sell it to the public or something?I am now wondering if it`s worth even thinking about it.

It is indeed against EU laws to make home made insecticides.

We've had this question on here a lot of times.  I'll see if I can find some links for you.

You can do what you like in the privacy of your own garden re homemade insecticides.  But, as they are technically illegal we cannot be seen to condone them on this site.   :)

I've decided to lock this topic as we really don't need the EU laws debated again.

Please PM me if you want to.
