  • Apply extract with animal urine at least 60 days prior to harvest.
  • Wash vegetables and fruits thoroughly before use.
  • Standard procedures for the preparation and application of homemade extracts

    1. Use utensils for the extract preparation that are not use for your food preparation and for drinking and cooking water containers. Clean properly all the utensils every time after using them.
    2. Do not have a direct contact with the crude extract while in the process of the preparation and during the application.
    3. Make sure that you place the extract out of reach of children and house pets while leaving it overnight.
    4. Harvest all the mature and ripe fruits before extract application.

    6. Wear protective clothing while applying the extract.
    7. Wash your hands after handling the extract.
