Yep, it works. I've been using a similar formula for years. It's absolutely devastating on wasps, horseflies, and stinkbugs.

squash bugs and cucumber beetles wreck havoc here. I saved your recipe for 'bad bug' soap! I will try it this summer!

Last year I used a diatomaceous earth (DE) suspension with some permethrin mixed in sprayed at the base of the squash plants and it seemed fairly effective, not 100% in ridding or at least cutting way back on squash bugs. It helped then, may not help this year, time will tell. Also, I discovered some Japanese beetles in my pear trees and sprayed them with the same treatment. The flew away like they were under machine gun attack and never returned.
