Charliebear's suggestions are vary good ones, and I'll add try a dusting of All Purpose Flour, but more labor intensive. Most people don't seem to add labor to the expense of growing food. Spraying chemicals, IMO, will always be easier and have faster results.
Zero is always the best price
Here again IMO, not always. Here is a simple example. A customer of mine pick-up a "free" Sears Crapsman riding mower. First go around I put about $275.00 into it. Last week I put another $150.00 of parts labor.
One should always look the gift horse in the mouth.
