Reviewing 5 Of The Best Beach Umbrellas Of 2017

Only a handful of activities beat lounging on the beach on a summer day. Ice cream on a sunny day comes close, but still moist of us would rather be lapping on that ice cream while lazing on white sand with the sound of breaking waves. Now, if you are going to enjoy any substantial amount of time in the sun, you must bring along the best beach umbrella or otherwise the sun’s rays will be unforgiving.

What To Look For In A Beach Umbrella


Sunscreen is among the first things beachgoers will pack. You do not want to leave home without essential coverage for your skin. Now, the equivalent of SPF is UPF, which measures the rate at which the fabric will absorb the sun's harmful rays. UPF50 is almost the same as SPF50 for sunscreen, and so you should always go for a beach umbrella with a reasonably high UPF.

A UPF range of between 15 and 24 offers excellent protection. 24-39 is very good sun block, while 39-50+ offers excellent UV protection.


The number of people that will be using the umbrella will certainly dictate this factor. Generally, 6-7 ft beach umbrellas are a common size that accommodates two people. The other popular size is 7-13 ft, and it handles between 4 and 6 people depending on their sizes. Weight differs depending on the material and pole, but you are better off with an easily portable beach umbrella.

Since we brought up weight, we might as well talk about the material of the pole. The umbrella itself is pretty light seeing as it is purely fabric, but the pole cold either be made of aluminum or steel. Those two are the most popular, seeing as they are light and durable, especially when powder-coated. Wood is brilliant too, but it is heavy and will only be best when you are making a permanent lounging place.

Do You Need To Worry About The Wind?

Of course, you do! The ocean causes a cool breeze that we all love, and so the best way to get your beach umbrella to stay in place is by anchoring it with sand. The best option is to get a sandbag that will weigh the umbrella down and keep it in this position regardless of how windy it gets. You can use stakes too to avoid the umbrella from being blown away.

Other things you may want to ensure here is that the fabric is waterproof. Naturally, the material that makes most of them is waterproof, but you want to be sure that no water will get in just in case the skies decide to open up while you are on the beach.

Of Tilting Poles?

You may have been to a hotel that had the facilities at the beach and noted that you could tilt the pole to stay safe from rays. You do not want to keep moving the umbrella every hour when the sun shifts, do you? Well, you can purchase a pole with this feature to give you angle options. It may be a tad pricey for obvious reasons, but it is worth the price.

Color of the fabric will depend on your personality. Interestingly, most beach umbrellas I have seen are colorful and delightful. I believe it has something to do with the beach where they are mostly used.

The Design

You may have seen people enclosed in what looked like a tent while at the beach. This type of umbrella is mostly preferred by parents with little ones or people working on their laptops from the beach. This umbrella will keep away elements and sand, enclosing you within a safe space. The downside is that you miss the beauty of the ocean. The tent will undoubtedly have windows or another form of outlet, and so it is likely to let in rainwater. But then again, what are the chances of it raining in summer?

Those umbrellas that just cover you sufficiently from the sun but leave you exposed are the most popular. They are easy to set up and light. The downside is that you have to anchor them to prevent the wind from carrying them away.

Does It Have A Carry Bag?

Well, a carry bag is one of those things that should never be a deal breaker if you find a great beach umbrella, as you can buy it from any retailer. Nonetheless, look out for one that comes with a carry bag for easy porting. In fact, most of them do.

The two important factors in a carry bag are the zipper and shoulder strap. If the zipper is ruined or rusty, it renders the bag useless. If the shoulder strap is too thin, then it becomes uncomfortable to sling across your shoulder. Try and get one that is broad and comfortable.

Other Little Things That May Matter

Internal pockets can be lifesavers. They provide the space for your cash, credit cards, wallet, and car keys. You do not want to lose those in the sand and then have to spend the night at the beach. With the pockets, you can dash into the ocean for a dip before coming back to your laptop.

So, let us review those beach umbrellas!

Top 10 Of The Best Umbrellas For The Rainy Season

Sometimes the weatherman gets it right, and the predicted rain falls at the time that they said it would. Sometimes the forecast fails miserably, and you end up soaking in the rain for a good while. As much as you trust the weatherman, it would not hurt to carry the best umbrella in your bag or car just in case the heavens decide to open up.

We all know that sorting through thousands of umbrellas is hectic, just as it would be going through any product that comes in thousands of brands.

Top 5 Of The Best Beach Tents For This Year’s Summer

Summers are all about fun and games, and water games dominate highly. There is something inherently freeing about the beach, which is why most people let off their inner child as soon as they hit the water. Life is for the living, no? So, what beach essential do you need to have unlimited fun? Answer: the best beach tent you can find. Let’s find you a keeper.

What Are You Looking For?​

Let’s talk beach tents. In the ancient times, Arab traders moved from place to place to facilitate their trade. You can imagine there were no phones or computers to help them traverse the world to sell their wares, and so they had to do what they had to do. The cruises would lead them to beaches where they would lay their beach tents and take a break before resuming the journey. Commitment.

Fast forward to present day. We have all manner of communication means, but we still yearn for adventure. Do you want to spend the night on a public beach? No biggie, long as you have the best canopy for the beach. Before you buy, pay attention to these tiny details.

Coverage – Think UPF​

The thickest material will not necessarily cut it here. Matter of fact, you may find that it only makes you sweaty and hot without proper coverage. What matters more is the UPF coverage, essentially the measure of how much of the sun’s UV rays make it through the fabric and to your skin. The best coverage is in the range of UPF 50. That ensures that you are protected from up to 98% of the sun’s rays.​

Material Of The Canopy And The Rods

Most canopies are made of polyester, given its ability to prevent water from entering your beach abode. You want to ensure that your preferred bars are made of steel so that they last as long as the canopy does. Most pop-up canopies need no set-up as long as the small rods can snap out into position. Seeing as they will be subject to enough folding and unfolding, you want them firm and sturdy.

The floor of the tent will be made of the same material as the rest of the canopy, and so you should go for the sturdiest. As we noted, polyester can take a beating so choose it for a durable tent.

Type and Size​

These will be determined by the size of your family and the reason for which you need the tent. If yours is a family of four that only needs this for the random weekend outing, you may choose a large tent that does not necessarily have to be the lightest. If yours is for constant travel, then you want a light tent that will come along with you.

A pop-up tent is ideal for travel seeing as it compresses to this compact unit that you can comfortably carry in a carrying case. The rods are light too. Some of them even come with inbuilt sand pockets, so that is a bonus. It is pretty small, and so most are appropriate for a party of two.

Family tents are yet another popular type, preferred by… families of course! They are usually large enough to accommodate anything from four people. The one thing about them is that they do not give a beach vibe, and so they fit anywhere from the beach to the backyard.

Cabana Beach Tents are yet another type. These are large and spacious, and they resemble a mini football pitch. They are ideal for large families or gatherings that need shielding from the sun. One thing they have over the other types is their resilience. A cabana beach tent is made of sturdy material that will withstand just about anything from the dog’s paws to children’s actions. Naturally, you can use them in other places apart from the beach.

Other Factors That Matter​

Internal pockets are a great asset of any beach tent as they make easy storage for your cards, phones, and keys. Some people will even consider the lack of pockets a deal breaker. Well, it does give you peace of mind knowing your car keys are safe and not in the sand.

Color and budget may not be big deals, as you are better off with an ugly but high-quality beach tent. But then again, do tell, have you ever seen an ugly beach canopy? We thought so. You'll undoubtedly have a budget in mind, but the reason for this review was to give you some of the best beach tents that will not break the bank.

​So, without further ado, let’s go shopping!

#1 -Pacific Breeze Easy Up Beach Tent - Best Price On The Market

It sets up quickly and it is priced reasonably but it is too small.

This easy-to-erect tent takes the color of the ocean. The color never fades even with constant washing, which is easy to clean and care for. It leaves little doubt as to why most fun lovers voted it as one of the best beach shelters on the market.

This tent measures 87 L x 47 H x 49 D, and it weighs 4.5lbs when packed. Even though it expands to fit up to 2 adults, it also compresses easily when you want to travel, and it also comes with a fitted carrying bag. The interior part of this beach tent is spacious for two and airy, thanks to the open plan. If you wish to zip it up completely, you have windows inside to let in air and light.

Although internal pockets are not deal breakers, they come close to making you change your mind. This tent has three of them for personal items. The set up is pretty easy with the manual that comes with the tent. It has sand pockets and sand bags too, so you will not need to buy new pairs.​

    #2 - INTEY Beach Tent 3 Season Waterproof Tent - Best For Easy Set-Up

    It is spacious to accommodate two adults and a toddler, but fortunately, there is only one window in the tent.

    The beach is unpredictable which is why you need a waterproof beach tent to keep the water out in case the ocean decides to rage. You also know not when the heavens will open up, and so it helps to stay protected and dry.

    This tent is blue, and it is made of a polyester fabric with 190T UV protection. You can count on 98% protection from the sun’s rays with this UPF 50 property. This beach shelter is easy to set up with its four tent pegs that hold it down against the beach’s wind. The floor has a great cover too, to keep the sand away. It is a whole tent that you can comfortably sleep in even in your backyard. It comes down as quickly as it erects.

      • The single pouch is not enough.
      • It only has one window.

      Small and compact when folded, but it has no pockets for personal items.

      You can zip this pop-up tent to make it 100% private. To counter the lack of light, small windows carved into the tent provide some air. The pop-up at the front makes it easy to set up, seeing as you will only need to erect it with the supportive poles and then place the sandbags at the bottom.

      The sand pockets are inbuilt, so you will not need to buy them separately. All six metal rods fold into two for easy porting. When it is set up, this tent will accommodate two adults and a toddler, but it folds into this 65 x 59 x 43.5 inches compact unit that you can carry comfortably on your shoulder, thanks to the carrying case that it comes with.​

      The material is polyester, and it is fortified with UPF50 to keep you protected from harmful rays of the sun. The same sturdy material makes up the floor, and so the sand will stay out of your little home on the beach.

      • Inbuilt sand bags keep in grounded.

        What we don't like:

        • Once closed up, it becomes too small.

        #4 - WolfWise UPF 50+ Easy Pop Up Beach Tent - Best Canopy Tent For Its Size

        It pops up well and lets in fresh air, but it is a tad too expensive.

        The sides of this pop-up WolfWise beach tent have two large mesh windows that let in enough air and light should you decide to zip up the front part. The tent is blue, and it sets up as quickly as it comes down. It is made of anti-tear 190T polyester while the poles are galvanized to avoid rust. The entire unit is made to endure harsh elements.

        As the tent is a pop-up, it does not require any setup per se. All you need to do is let it out of its bag and watch it unfold. It comes together just as easily, and the sand pockets will keep it in place in case of the wind blows too hard.The fabric is UPF50+ and waterproof, and so you can be sure to be safe on the beach even when it rains. Inside, you have two pockets for personal effects.

        What we like:

        • UPF 50+ is ideal for blocking harmful rays.
        • A pop-up does not need equipment to set up.
        • It weighs 3lbs when folded.

          What we don't like:

          • It is small.
          • Expensive for its size

          #5 - Summer Breeze Easy Pop Up Beach Tent – Wide and Spacious Beach Tent

          While this tent is wide and spacious, the poles feel a bit flimsy.

          This beach tent sets up in seconds because all you have to do is straighten the metal rods on the side and watch it pop open. It is blue and yellow and has six bars on the side to keep each corner well prompted. It also has two inbuilt sand bags to weigh it down and keep it grounded when the wind blows.

          The material, polyester 210t ripstop is durable and has UPF 50 for sun block. The tent measures 87" wide, 47" high and 49" deep and will accommodate two adults. On each side, you have two large windows for ventilation and light. The additional vent at the top acts as a windbreaker.

          The floor of the tent has the same fabric to keep it dry and sand-free. The entire tent is waterproof, and it will keep you covered sufficiently. It could do with some pockets, though.

          Last update on 2019-08-24 at 22:20 PST - Details

          What we like:

          • The tent is spacious and airy.
          • It sets up in seconds.
          • The fabric blocks as much of the sun’s rays as possible

            What we don't like:

            • No pockets.
            • It is quite small.


            Pop-up tents have to be the best, thanks to their easy setup. As long as you unfold the bars, the rest of the canopy opens up by itself. They are just as easy to bring down, which makes them popular among most beachgoers.

            The reason why we choose Pacific Breeze Easy Up Beach Tentas the best in this category is the ease of setting up, its lightweight nature, and its price. It is not at all lost on us that the fabric is of high quality and that it provides UV protection. Other things we like are the internal pockets that are so convenient and the inbuilt sandbags.

            5 Of The Best Beach Chairs Of 2017

            It is a beautiful day: the sky is blue, and the sun is out. What are we doing today? Beaching; that’s what. So, here is the checklist for tag-along: SPF 50+ lotion, a bikini (very important), a beach tent, a carefree attitude, and the best beach chair! Yeah, you will not spend all your day in the water because you are not a fish, so you may as well bring that chair along.

            But before you make that commitment, what should you look for in a beach chair?

            Beach chairs difference from ordinary chairs in a few ways one of them being that they are more about comfort and style. Yeah, vanity and comfort can be in the same sentence, and that’s alright.


            First, you will be headed to the beach with a large water body in front of you. Actually, that’s why you are going there in the first place. You want a chair that is waterproof to defy all the mess that good ole water can cause. The material that makes up the sitting pad and the back should not hold water, as that will take longer to dry and the sun is sometimes limited.

            The legs matter too. You want them to be foldable so that they do not take too much storage space. Most chairs are made of steel, but you will find a few made of wood. Wood is slightly heavier, and so it will not work well if you want your chair to tag along for trips.

            Powder-coated steel is durable, and so it will weather the storm and the salty water on the beach. It is also foldable and easy to transport. The size of the chair is a personal choice, although you don’t want it to be too big and bulky.

            Other Things To Consider


            The best beach chairs on Amazon are not necessarily the priciest. They simply have great features (and are colorful too). As long as it is comfortable and made of the right material, you are good. Cup holders are great additions, seeing as no one wants to place their drink on the sand and then have to stretch their arms to pick it up.

            Padded armrests and backs make the chair even more comfortable, and they are certainly important for those with bad backs. You may have to add a little money for a more comfortable chair, but it is necessary, especially if you spend several hours sitting down.

            Carry bags are deal breakers these days. A retailer should be gracious enough to throw in a carry bag given the cost of these chairs. Again, if you are always moving around with your new possession, you want a nice convenient bag to carry it in.

            Why Do You Need Beach Chair Anyways?

            Oh, The Comfort!

            The beach is for good days! You want to go down there and forget about Syria or that children are dying of hunger in some parts of the world. The only way to lounge and read that book without interference is by getting yourself a beach chair. Better yet, get one that is padded for comfort and add a beach umbrella to it for unrivaled comfort. The only problem could be you falling asleep and only waking up to angry waves lapping at your feet.

            Take It Anywhere

            The best thing about these beach chairs is that they are multipurpose. You can take it to camp with you so that you can take a break from the hammock. They also come in handy when you sit down to roast wild vegetables and bush meat or otherwise you will be sitting on an uncomfortable rock.

            Various Types Of Beach Chairs​

            Traditional Chairs

            Most of these are made of wood, and they are a tad bulkier than your usual beach chair. They used to be quite popular back in the day, but some people still use them to date. They are sturdier and offer better back support, thanks to their construction. However, they are bulky and ideal for those who own beach houses or those who don’t mind lugging them in the car.

            Portable Beach Chairs

            They are usually small, and light and their feet are naturally made of steel for its weight. They are collapsible, and so they port quite easily as all you gave to do is fold the little thing and throw it in the trunk. The main undoing of these chairs is in their construction. Compared to the traditional beach chair, they feel flimsy, and they will make you feel uncomfortable if you sit on these chairs for too long.

            Portable beach chairs are ideal to use for the short-term because they are not designed for longevity anyways, and it is best not to spend too much time on one. Upside, they are cheap.

                  Blue is a beautiful color and well loved by most makers of beach chairs from the collection we have seen. This beauty is blue and elegant. You would think it were a typical chair that you find in a home, thanks to its sturdiness that shows in its steel legs and armrests.

                  The material is polyester, and so it does not hold water. The aluminum legs and frame are coated to prevent rust. The armrests are plastic coated for more comfort, and you will notice plastic hardly gets cold. It has a cup holder on the side, but no larger pouch for other items. It has a headrest that comes in handy when you recline it or reposition it in any of the 4 possible positions.

                  This chair holds up to 240lbs, seeing as it is quite sturdy. It folds into this compact unit measuring 4.13 x 25.24 x 29.76 inches and weighing 7lbs. It comes with a sizeable carrying case with a wide, comfortable strap. It is easy to carry around, thanks to the comfortable carrying bag and its compact size. The weight helps too.

This chair is 24 inches off the floor, and so it is as comfortable as most regular chairs you have at home. The great thing is that it works perfectly for other settings as well, and so you can take it to camping and all.

                    The armrests on this baby are a bit narrow, but they are padded, and so they are still comfortable. The side table that you pull from the collapsible chair will comfortably hold a book and drinks. It is made of hard plastic to handle pressure. The steel frame will handle up to 225lbs, and it folds easily when you want to pack it.

                    It has no headrest, and it does not recline into several positions like some beach chairs, but it makes up for this teeny shortcoming with the pull-up table and its elegance.

                      24 Organic Pest Control that Will Make Your Garden Healthy and Pest-Free Right Now

                      Starting up a new garden is easy.

                      But, just like anything else, the maintenance part is the most trivial one. Sooner or later, you will encounter challenges.

                      One of the most common problems in a garden would be pests; but worry not because I have created the best organic pest control list for you.​

                      ​Although there are so many choices for pest control available on the market these days, I would like to acknowledge that not all products out there are relatively safe for your plants. Having a list of natural home pest control is essential.

                      Trust me on this; it will not only be for your vegetation. It will also safeguard the health of your family or those people and animals that will eat your produce. Now tell me, would you want to have a pest-free garden that grows poisonous fruits and vegetables? I bet not.

                      Trust me on this; it will not only be for your vegetation. It will also safeguard the health of your family or those people and animals that will eat your produce. Now tell me, would you want to have a pest-free garden that grows poisonous fruits and vegetables? I bet not.

                      The Top 4 Organic Pest Control

                      The first four are specifically exceptional because they are considered power foods by people who are highly health conscious. Can you just imagine sharing your food with your plants? These four edible items will not only help you achieve the body and wellness you desire, it can also safeguard your garden.

                      On top of that, when I suggested these four items to friends and colleagues, they would often feel surprised.

                      #1. Squeeze the Leaves of Papaya to Get Rid of Small Pests

                      Papaya is a popular fruit when it comes to cleaning your digestive system. But did you know that the extracts of the papaya leaves are a perfect natural pest control for gardens?

                      A study on Carica Papaya’s Leaves shows that the substances it contains such as Vitamins A, B1, C, Charcoal hydrate, calcium, phosphorus, iron, papayotin kautsyuk, and the likes can combat caterpillars. The specific active ingredient in the papaya leaves known as Papain makes it super effective.

                      The solution can not only shoo caterpillars, it can also prevent the presence of aphids, termites, and other small insects.

                      But that is not all; it can also serve as a collector of crop pests. They can successfully trap other pests like russet mites by attracting them after which, you could just easily remove them from your garden.​

                      How to Specifically Use it:

                      • Prepare 1 kg of papaya leaves, 10 liters of water, 2 tbsp kerosene, 30 g detergent, and soft cloth for filtering
                      • Mash the leaves until it is smooth
                      • Add and mix the remaining products to the mashed leaves and let it sit overnight
                      • Using the soft cloth, strain the solution to separate the leaves from the liquid
                      • Put the extract to a pump sprayer

                      This is the first in our list because aside from acting as a pesticide, the extract weakens eggs, larvae and pupae development. It gets better because it can also prevent bacteria and other pathogens from growing. This protects your plants from certain diseases.

                      I’m not going to lie to you, the papaya leaves extract works slowly but surely. And it will be more efficient if you spray the solution routinely.

                      #2. Fungal Infection? Cornmeal Juice to the Rescue!

                      In the event where you notice your plants to develop signs and symptoms of fungal infection, one efficient thing you can do is to use cornmeal juice.​

                      A fungus is one of the pests gardener hate with passion. It can destroy the appearance of our plants. This pathogen can weaken them. Fungal infections can cause secondary plant diseases and can eventually kill our plants; wasting all our hard work and time.

                      Worry not because Cornmeal Juice has been professionally recommended to act as an effective fungicide.

                      Let me share with you important information I learned from the Complete Handbook of Howard Garrett, where he stated that cornmeal juice can treat different fungal diseases.​

                      How to Specifically Use it:

                      If you are growing roses, the presence of fungus can be manifested by dark spots with a yellow halo in the leaves. Spraying compost tea and cornmeal juice can solve this problem.

                      Sometimes, you can encounter fungal diseases during cold weathers too. St. Augustine grass is most vulnerable to this. It weakens the leaves, making them be easily pulled loose. The grass can grow small to large spots which weaken the turf. On occasions like this, you may apply 20 pounds of cornmeal for every 1,000 sq. ft of your soil.

                      Edible plants such as peppers, potatoes, tomatoes and other vegetables can also be infected with fungus. In addition to that, ornamental plants can also develop a fungal infection. Using your best garden sprayer, spraying plants with cornmeal juice, compost tea and using cornmeal products to treat the soil is helpful.​

                      Using cornmeal juice can also be beneficial if you observe your plants wilting and turning yellow. Aside from that, if you notice your grass developing vertical spots that are grayish in color, use cornmeal as well.

                      You may also prepare 1 cup of cornmeal, soak it in 5 gallons of water for 1 hour, filter the solids and spray the liquid in the affected area. Some farmers prefer to drench the soil with this solution instead.

                      #3. Check this out: Milk as Your Next Favorite Garden Treatment

                      Taking care of cucumbers, crab apples, grapes, lilacs, squashes, roses, and phlox may be challenging because they are highly susceptible to powdery mildew – another fungal infection.

                      This is caused by Erysiphales fungus. They are airborne and at the same time, insects and water can carry them. They are white spots on the leaves of your plants. Appearing as harmful specks, they can silently chop off the lifeline of the leaf by interfering with photosynthesis.

                      Believe it or not, this technique has been used for decades already. A practice of making sprays made of 40% and 60% of milk and water respectively has been very successful in managing powdery mildews.

                      If you are a fan of sulfur and other synthetic chemicals, this concoction can be your alternative vegetable garden pest control.

                      You might be wondering how milk can be effective, right? Well, most scholars believe that the protein interaction with the rays of the sun turns out to emit certain antiseptic effects. This kills the fungi in the leaves by “burning” them without harming the part of the plant.

                      How to Specifically Use it:

                      I highly suggest for you to experiment with the dilution of your mix. Although the 40-60% proportion is widely used, some opt to utilize 10% milk, 90% water or 30% milk and 70% water.

                      It is a very wise idea to spray on sunny days particularly between 12 noon to 4 in the afternoon. You may spray once every two weeks to once a week.​

                      According to the article of Ms. Barbara Pleasant, the type of milk (skim, whole, non-fat or low-fat) does not have a big impact since we are after the protein after all.

                      It would be a very good investment to utilize organic milk for this. Just like for your body, premium nutrients can give you optimum wellness. This is according to another trusted gardener online.

                      Unfortunately, you have to be prepared for an unusual odor when using this. Some users are complaining about this, but since I do not spray it in shady areas, I do not observe any foul smell.​

                      #4. Trap that Japanese beetle with… a Banana

                      It is so common to hear my fellow gardener complain about the presence of Japanese beetles.

                      These Japanese beetles are so devastating. They multiply so fast and they can be seen everywhere! Such a nuisance! Japanese beetles destroy all types of plants. Hence, they can destroy the appearance of your landscapes too!

                      They feed on more than 300 plant species according to one informative article about Japanese beetle. These pests eat up leaves up until it is left with the toughest veins. The roots are also one of their food sources. When they target roots, they wreck up golf courses and parks.

                      How to Specifically Use it:

                      Using only 1 mashed banana, mix 2 cups water, half cup of sugar, half cup of wine and a half teaspoon of yeast. Let it sit in a covered container. Place it in an area highly exposed to sunlight for one whole day.

                      The aroma of the mixture will surely attract these dangerous insects. They will gather around and feed themselves and you can just simply

                      Sounds good right?

                      But here’s the deal: You have to learn how and where to properly place the trap or else you will suffer. Why? If you do not, you will actually attract and not trap more beetles. This natural pest-controlling method, therefore, needs expertise. But worry not as I will share important tricks.

                      First, you have to place the traps 1-2 inches away from the soil. Remember not to place them in infested plants. Also, you have to choose an area that is exposed to sun.

                      As for the maintenance, you have to replace your traps every year. Encourage other community members to use the trap so as to kill as much Japanese beetle as you can.

                      Let us talk about the most famous downside of using Japanese beetle traps: foul smell. The combination of fermenting banana and dead beetles sometimes discourages gardeners to use this organic pest control.​

                      Additional 20 Natural Pesticides for Home

                      These next items are more common ones. They can target numerous kinds of pests. You may notice that one insect or disease can be solved by multiple organic pest control. Please try the solution to a number of plants first and observe for 1 to 2 days before using it to the whole garden.

                      Also, bear in mind that the effectivity may depend on few conditions such as the characteristic of the soil, type of weather, and even method of application.

                      Although these may all be natural or organic, you may still need to wear something to protect you especially your eyes.

                      #1. One Cup of Tea for the Garden!

                      Recently, I published a blog entry about compost which also tackled the use of a compost tea. I specifically mentioned how you can improve your plants such as mums with it. The main purpose of the tea there is to act as fertilizer.

                      Compost tea, however, has been proven by many gardeners to successfully eliminate pests. Some of my friends would even attest that it can even solve mold problems. On top of that, it can also help prevent diseases on your foliage.​

                      To make this, you have to mix your compost with water. Just like the teas you are drinking, you have to undergo the same process of letting it sit and filtering it. After all of the said procedure, you will then have to collect the liquid and use it to spray on your floras.

                      #2. ​Aphids No More, Thank You Tomato!

                      It is clever to save some seeds and grow your own fruits. I have discussed in one of my recent blogs as well. This will come handy since you will learn today that you can use the leaves of tomatoes to get rid of pests like aphids.

                      This is a very easy homemade insecticide. You will just need 2 cups of tomato leaves (chopped), 2 cups of water and a strainer.

                      Combine the two ingredients and leave it for 24 hours. Separate the solids from the liquid using the strainer. Alternatively, feel free to make use of coffee filter if you do not have one. Put additional 2 cups of water to the extracted fluid.

                      Now all you have to do is to get your sprayer and target the stems of your plants. Do not forget to spray on the undersides of the leaves since this is where aphids usually hide.

                      Although this treatment is organic, it is still advisable for you to wash your tomato before eating it.

                      #3. Vitamin Citrus for Bugs!

                      If you are fond of eating oranges, you will be happy to know that you do not have to waste the peelings of it. Orange peels can help you get rid of soft-bodied bugs (aphids, fungus gnats, mealy bugs, and slugs). It can also help you do away with ants and roaches.

                      Check out my other blog to learn how to specifically kill red ants here.

                      Create your own by using fresh citrus peels or 1.5 teaspoons of dried citrus peels. In a container, pour 2 cups of boiling water on the orange peels. Leave the solution untouched for 24 hours. Pour the solution into a strainer to separate the peels.​

                      Pour the fluid into a sprayer and then add Castile Soap Drops. Spray directly on pests. You may also spray the solution to affected plants to shoo pests away.

                      #4. ​Garlic, Peppers, and Onion: Partners for Sauté, Partners for Garden

                      I believe every house would always have these ingredients. I was so glad the moment I learned about this method. Fighting off pests has never been so personal, I thought.

                      These natural pesticides for vegetable garden are perfect if you have problems with aphids, grasshoppers, thrips, and other insects that chew and suck your plants. This solution is recommended for roses, azaleas and of course, vegetable garden towers.

                      You will need 2 pieces of hot peppers, 1 large onion, a whole bulb of garlic, oil and a dash of salt and pepper. Whoops! Let me delete those last two ingredients. I got carried away; I thought I was on a cooking show.

                      Going back… Using a food processor, blend pepper, onion, and garlic with water until they are fully mashed. Transfer the mixture to another container and add 1 gallon of hot water. Let it sit for 24 hours. Strain and spray on plants.

                      #5. Apple Cider Vinegar Indeed has so Many Uses

                      After learning that I can increase my metabolism, speed up the process of weight loss and do lots of wonders for my body (internally and externally), Apple Cider Vinegar has been a part of my grocery list.

                      The wonders of ACV do not stop there. If you have issues with pests: ants, fruit flies, fungi, snails, and slugs, this next ingredient will probably be your next best friend.

                      You may use the vinegar purely or you can mix water to dilute it and lessen its acidity. In warding off ants, for example, you just have to spray vinegar and reapply after few days on the trail they made.

                      As for fruit flies, you will need more ingredients though. A cup of water, half cup of vinegar, ¼ cup sugar, and 1 tablespoon of molasses to be exact. This time, you are not going to spray them, but put the solution inside a trap.

                      Fungal diseases? 3 tablespoons of ACV mixed with 4 liters of water is all you need for your roses. Alternatively, for other plants, you may mix 1 tablespoons of white vinegar with 2 liters of compost tea.

                      To control powdery mildew, aside from using milk, you can also spray a mixture of 1 tablespoons apple cider vinegar combined with 2 liters of water to the plant.

                      Using a ratio of 1:1, mix vinegar with water. Use this solution to clean your gardening tools. All you have to do is to soak them, and the mixture will act as a disinfectant.

                      #6. Use Soap Spray and Say Goodbye to Insects

                      You might be wondering why I included this on our list. I am talking about naturally made soaps and not the one with chemical contents, not detergent soap, and not dish soap.

                      You can deal with problematic aphids, mites, bugs and other thrips with this solution. If you wanted specific ways on how to get rid of russet mites, please see my other blog post.

                      The scent does not really matter. What we are after is the fatty acid content of your soap. Avoid soaps with degreasers and moisturizers.

                      To create this natural pest control, add 5 tablespoons of soap in a gallon of water or 1 tablespoon of soap in a quart of water. Shake and spray. Some recommended types of soaps would be Thyme soap bars and Naptha soap.

                      Please be reminded to be careful in choosing a sprayer to use. Never use a sprayer previously containing herbicides or weed killers.

                      #7. DE: Diatomaceous Earth, Dehydrate Enemies

                      Unlike the other items listed on this list, diatomaceous earth does not sound edible but you can actually eat this bug killer.

                      There are two primary methods how this organic pest control works.

                      The first one is that it actually dehydrates the pest as it tries to remove the fats from the exoskeleton of the insects. This part helps the insect conserve moisture.​

                      Another is that when they actually consume the diatomaceous earth and its tiny particles will lodge into their digestive system. It does not only cause clogging, its sharp structure also causes the soft bodies of insects to be sliced as they move.

                      This insecticide is effective in killing ants, bed bugs, cockroach, fleas and house dust mites.

                      To use this, you have to simply sprinkle a dash of dry diatomaceous earth on the soil. Please reapply if the surface gets soaked in water (rain or dew). You may also apply DE directly to the newly hatched larvae of beetles and bugs.

                      #8. Tobacco is bad for Your Pests’ Health …too

                      The government has tried numerous ways on how to ward people off from using tobacco. I can just imagine insects conducting a meeting to talk about the damaging effects of tobacco on their lives (more like in the movie Ants or A Bugs Life... hahaha!).

                      Kidding aside, the nicotine, the same harmful content of cigar is the one that will kill the enemies. One who is using this pesticide should take extra precaution as too much spraying can kill beneficial insects in your garden too.

                      To make the nicotine spray, you must have 100 pieces of cigarette butts and 4 liters of water. Boil the butts in water, strain, and dilute with 2 parts of water. Spray on infected plants.

                      PS. This should not be an excuse for you to smoke 100 or even 1 stick!

                      Please take note: this is not advisable for edible parts of crops or any members of potato or tomato family.

                      Oils, Oils, Oils

                      There was a time when people only had bad notions about oils. They say they make you fat and it will just give you a heart attack. Good thing, people are now realizing that we should not be avoiding oils as long as it is taken in moderation.

                      People are also starting to appreciate its benefits and are discovering more and more uses of oil especially in the world of agriculture.

                      All gardeners should take precaution when using oils in plants for these reasons:

                      • ​Not all plants can handle oil in their vascular systems, and
                      • During summer, oil treated plants can get damaged as they will burn (much like the sunburn we get but of course, our skin is thicker and well-protected)

                      #1. Neem Oil Soil Drench Is a Powerful Insecticide and Fungicide

                      In the previous items, you may have predicted the next step: strain and spray. Neem oil can also be prepared that way but it also has a different tactic to get rid of unwanted insects.Let us talk about the spray first.

                      In making Neem sprays, you will need 1 teaspoon of high quality, cold pressed neem oil, 1-liter warm water and 1/3 teaspoon of detergent or insecticidal soap.

                      Mix warm water and soap then apply the oil slowly while vigorously stirring the mixture. You have to shake, shake, and shake and use the solution within eight hours. Spray the solution on leaves. If it is your first time and your garden is suffering from an infestation, feel free to drench all leaves and soil around the plant.

                      Now since we already talked about drenching, let me explain to you how it works.

                      Drenching the soil with these natural pesticides for herbs allows the plant to reabsorb it. This may take few days, but what it does is to directly harm the insects that feed on it. It affects the growth of the insects, its reproductive system and causes breathing problems.​

                      PRO TIP: do not spray at noon or in the evening so as not to kill helpful insects. Preferably, you should spray early mornings and late afternoons.

                      ​#2. Horticultural Oil Blocks the Airway of your Unwanted Visitors

                      Well, this seems to be the most challenging oil in the list. A huge populace of the populace is not really aware of what it is.

                      Horticultural oils are seasoned oils. We are aware that some plants bear flowers and fruits at a specified season only. Certain pests are attracted during a particular cycle of flowering.

                      This is why farmers started making use of oils for that certain dormant season or when the buds of the flowers are just beginning to flourish. Dormant oil targets to kill aphids, mites, and scales. They also made summer or all season oils which are applied to plants during growing season.

                      Horticultural oils have two ways to eradicate pests. First of all, it suffocates them. As you spray the oil to the insect, the oil goes to the spiracles (this serves as the mouth and nose). It then causes breathing problems as it blocks the airway.

                      Before teaching you how to make horticultural oil sprays, let me tell you tips to help your solution become highly effective.

                      Primarily, never use the oil during extreme temperatures. That would be freezing temperatures and if it is more than 100° F. It is also not recommended for you to use this pest control during high humidity. Do not spray horticultural oil during fall; and lastly, do not spray when the plant has been previously sprayed with insecticides that have Sulfur content. Check out the rationales behind these precautions here.

                      Now, to the moment you’ve been waiting for. Prepare 1 tablespoon of horticultural oil, 1 tablespoon of baking soda and a gallon of water. Shake and spray.

                      #3. Eucalyptus Oil

                      I have heard a number of gardener claims that they consider the Eucalyptus oil as the best insecticide for vegetable garden. I have no reservations for this. I grew up watching my grandparents using eucalyptus oil, my mother did the same, and I am not ashamed to say that I also have it at home!

                      Eucalyptus oil has been popular for its abundant functions. It serves as antiviral, antibacterial, expectorant, disinfectant, and an effective pain reliever.

                      Many households have this as a part of their medicinal cabinet. Mothers vouch that it gives significant relief in different health problems. It cleans multiple arrays of household items, it makes the house smells good and of course, and it gets rid of household and garden pests.

                      Focusing on our dear garden eucalyptus oil serves as an efficient acaricidal, insect repellent, herbicidal, and nematicidal according to one scholarly article. Hence, you should think twice about preparing your string trimmer head or weeder when you are dealing with stubborn growths.

                      It is so great because we can enjoy all of its functions so easily because eucalyptus oil is everywhere. You can even buy them in your nearest 24-hour convenient store.

                      When it comes to pest control, we can apply the oil in different ways. Humans may enjoy the scent of eucalyptus; however, this is not the case for ants and gnats. Because of the strong, sharp smell, they consider it to be hazardous.

                      To create a spray for this purpose, add ¼ teaspoon of eucalyptus oil to 1 cup water. Shake and spray. Reapply every three days.

                      Eucalyptus can also kill pests directly. This is particularly effective to aphids, earwigs, mites and whiteflies. The recipe for this spray is 2 cups water, 1 teaspoon eucalyptus oil and ½ teaspoon liquid hand dish detergent. Shake and spray directly. You can observe those abovementioned insects killed on contact.

                      #4. Suffocate those Pests with White Oil Spray

                      When aphids and mites are becoming very problematic and you do not know what to do, you can make one white oil spray to kill them all.

                      There’s not shooing here; the aim of this kind of spray is straight to the point: to suffocate and in the long run, kill the insect.

                      Aphids can cause the leaves of your plants to turn yellow. Aside from that, you can observe that the leaves are becoming deformed. You may also see some black sticky substances on different parts of the foliage. If there is too much presence of aphids, the plant dies.

                      They do not only feed on the plant, they also secrete honeydew which is a very sticky substance that is highly susceptible to mold formation. This will bring diseases to the plant. Unfortunately, some of the infections do not have a cure.

                      A cup white mineral oil diluted to a mixture of ¼ cup of detergent and 4 cups of water is what you need to prepare. Simply shake and spray directly on the insects.

                      How does white oil spray help eradicate pests, you may ask. Well, it is simple, as you spray the solution to soft-bodied insects; the oil will coat them entirely. Acting as a layer of plastic, the insects then cannot get their much-needed supply of oxygen. In turn, they will soon suffocate and die.

                      #5. Essential Oil Blends will help you Have Mosquito-Free Outdoor Fun

                      When I hear the term essential oils before, I would always think about meditation, aromatherapy, and massage. But when I started gardening, I think about no other than pesticides. It makes sense because people who love staying outdoors cannot fully relax when they are being frequently bitten by mosquitoes.

                      There are lots of options to choose from: Basil, Catnip, Cedar, Cedarwood, Cinnamon Oil, Citronella, Clove, Eucalyptus, Lemon, Lemon Eucalyptus, Lemongrass, Orange, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Tea Tree, and Thyme.

                      I believe that parents should give their active children homemade insecticide for mosquitoes. Technically speaking, this solution is not only beneficial for young ones as older people can also acquire mosquito-borne diseases such as malaria, dengue, chikungunya, and the Zika virus.

                      To create your own concoction, combine 2 ounces of boiled water, 1 ounce of witch hazel or vodka, and 60 drops of essential oils. Shake and then spray.Essential oils are not only for mosquitoes. They are also effective in eliminating fleas and ticks so feel free to spray on your dogs as well. Just make sure that you and your pets are not allergic to your chosen oil to prevent reactions.

                      Essential oils are not only for mosquitoes. They are also effective in eliminating fleas and ticks so feel free to spray on your dogs as well. Just make sure that you and your pets are not allergic to your chosen oil to prevent reactions.

                      Advantages and Disadvantages of Natural Home Pest Control

                      In today’s world, every one of us is expected to work hand in hand to save our mother earth. Using synthetic pesticides can be beneficial to our gardens. But the long-term effect is detrimental to all.

                      Using natural pest control methods is cheap. It can be made from easily accessible items. The ones you do not eat in vegetables can be turned into something useful just like orange peels. Even cigarette ends have its use here! If you are trying to live frugally, this is the way to go.

                      It does not cause plant toxicity. Although there are some reported cases in which the use of certain homemade pest control products resulted something bad, it is not as morbid as the effects of synthetic pesticides.

                      Another good reason is that different organic pesticides will not stimulate pests to develop immunity easily. Since they are natural, most pets would see it as a food source rather than an enemy. Hence, defending themselves from them would not even cross their mind.

                      In the same light, these insecticides made from natural sources can even attract beneficial insects. In return, it would help you grow a healthy garden by promoting bio-diversity. Special precaution should be taken, however, since some items on the list can also ward off beneficial insects if applied in large amounts.

                      On the other side, one of the common reasons why gardeners prefer pest control products that are not home-made is because they do not have time to carry out the steps of making natural pesticides. It is indeed time-consuming. You must also follow certain methods and measurements or else it would not be as effective as effective.

                      Synthetic ones also repel pests in a longer span of time and you do not have to re-apply as often as you do when you use natural insecticides.

                      Nonetheless, the benefits still outweigh these disadvantages that are why I highly support the use of organic products.


                      There is, indeed, a huge variety of popular list of organic pesticide. But it would always boil down to one question: which is the most suitable and effective one for me? I acknowledge that some people may vouch on one item’s perfection, but for others it may be completely useless.

                      Do not forget to follow highlighted tips and precautions so as not to commit detrimental mistakes. Remember, prevention is better than cure. Always test a small amount first so as not to regret in the end. Avoid wasting your effort, money, and time by conducting further research if you are in doubt.

                      Yes, I do advice for you to try them all and observe the results. This will allow you to understand your pests, plants, and soil better. This will allow you to analyze which homemade organic pest control to use.

                      However, I understand that not every one of us has the time to do that. Please comment below if you had any experience about any of the above-mentioned natural insect repellent for home. Kindly share with us additional tips as well.
