Cheap pesticide

The addicting chemical in cigarettes is nicotine, in large doses it would cause a heart attack in a humann, to insects its fatal. A simple homemade pesticide that wont harm any plant can simply be made by bumming a few (3-5) smokes off a smoker. Soak the ciggs in a 2-liter bottle for a day or two till the water is dark brown. Dont forget to remove the filters on the cigarette because they contain fiberglas (depending on the brand, marlboro uses fiberglas, camel uses cotton) which can harm your plants. Give the ciggs at least two days to soak in tap water then transfer the water (minus the soggy ciggs) to a spray bottle and spray your vegetation down with the homemade spray. Any insects that come into contatct with the vegetation will die :)

cheap homemade pesticide that works on all bugs that is non toxic to plants since they dont have a heart [:D].
