|Where can I find a burlap bag to hold compost manure? What can I use to prevent a leak between the soaker hose I insert into a 5 gallon bucket and the hole I drill into the manure tea bucket? Besides pepper sprays, what else (organic)could be made at home to prevent cucmber beetles?

|You can make a burlap bag out of a burlap tarp (sold at most Home Depot's). The tarps are usually next to the plastic tarps in the garden center. You can use brass or rubber connectors to make a leak proof connection between the hose and the bucket. Pepper sprays usually work against the beetles. Or, you may need to purchase Diatomaceous earth to spread beneath your plants. It's organic and should control the beetle population.
