    Sounds like something out of Monty Python, involving bazookas and mosquitoes.

    P.S. This kills ants instantly, and they are tough little pests.
    Carpenter ants? Where or how did you come across this recipe?

    Actually, when you think about it, these are very common ingredients, that we of this species utilize, on a daily basis. A little scary, if ya think about it.

    I used Schultz's Fruit and Vegetable Insect Spray, it says that it kills all stages of insects including the eggs. It also says that it kills aphids right on the front. Will this work.

    The Savage Garden (Bible of Cps) says that anything with soap in it will damage the plant because of how sensitive they are. I haven't used soap just because of that. I guess it is up to you. I would go w/ Jim's advice though.
