    4 whole cloves, 1 handful of wild mustard leaves, 1 clove of garlic, 1 cup of boiling water, Steep these ingredients in a bowl for 10 minutes. let the elixir cool, then strain out the solids.Put in a handheld sprayer, and spray plants thoroughly. Repeat after each rain to keep the repellent action fresh.
