Hey Dude,

Following are some of the popular organic remedies:

· Neem leaf extract spray: Frying insects, caterpillars.

· Neem Oil spray: Mealybugs.

· Soap water spray: Base solution for spraying any insecticide.

· Turmeric powder & dry ash: Ants & mites.

· Garlic oil spray: Aphids

· Wheat Flour mixed in water: Spider mites

· Sour buttermilk: Fungal infections

· Trichoderma friendly fungus: All soil-borne fungal infections.

Apart from these, there are multiple Bio-control methods like bacterial viruses & introduction of Natural enemies of pests in the farm (praying mantis, ladybugs) is practised.

I had a issue with squirrels chewing up my car cover. Bought a garlic oil/castor oil spray that seems to be working but was rather expensive. Found a recipe for pepper spray that is supposed to work for insect and mammal pests. You can make gallons of this stuff for a few dollars.
Boil 1 1/2 qts. Water
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Two chopped onions
One chopped jalapeño
Boil 30 minutes, then cool.
Strain out vegetables and pour into a spray bottle.
