Is insecticide made from nettles effective?
Having read that nettles can be used to make a natural insecticide, I collected a bucketful and have them soaking in water. The instructions were to give it two weeks and then strain off to use as a spray against blackfly etc. (If needed!) I would be interested to know if anyone has tried this and did it work. I am hoping that our blackfly problem will not be as bad as last year. Probably not connected, but already this year we have swarms of flies in the garden although it's been cold for several weeks - more than I can remember ever before.
