Tobacco as an insect repellent
by: Larry

First off using tobacco as an insect repellent will work but the tobacco may contain additional chemicals you do not want in your garden and remember that nicotine is considered a poison.

I would use a 12 oz to 16 oz (350 to 450 grams) bag of tobacco and steep it in a liter of water along with 3 or 4 cloves of garlic, cut up, and 1 oz (30 milliliters) of dish soap.

Steep for 15 minutes and strain.
