Can a person use a home made soap insectaside on cutworms (tomato), and if so do you have the formula? I don't like to use a pestacide if I don't have to on the vegetables I eat. Thanks in advance. Janis Koehn

Hello. I contacted Martha Smith from the University of Illinois Extension Macomb Center. She is a Horticulture Educator. She doesn't recommend using home made recipies regarding pest control. There are several insecticidal soaps on the market that are registered for use. She would recommend using one of those.

Thank you for using the H_M_W Website Sara Morby
