Rhubarb leaves, a natural insecticide

Rhubarb leaves, a natural insecticide, Trucs et astuces
  • Rhubarb—what a delicious treat! Baked in a pie, made into jam, or even in a salsa, we love it! Did you know that you can also use the leaves?
    Not to eat, of course—attention, they’re toxic! But you can use the leaves as a natural insecticide to get rid of ants, aphids and caterpillars in the garden.



    1. Place the rhubarb leaves in 20 litres of water overnight;
    2. The next day, use the water to spray on your plants.

    Advice from Ferme André Plouffe.
