Can spices be used as a pesticide if so what kinds?

    Burning rosemary or sage on the barbecue while you’re grilling something will help repel mosquitoes. Soaking a piece of string in citrus oil,laying a line of cayenne pepper, cinnamon, lemon juice, or coffee grounds will repel ants. These don’t so much kill the bugs as the do keep them at bay.

    Garlic may be pulverized and soaked or boiled to create a pungent liquid.  This may then be sprayed onto aphid infestations.  Cayenne pepper is also a great resource in experimenting with organic pesticides.
