I have been using tobacco dust residue from a local manufacturing
facilty as a natural ferilizer in my pumpkin patch. The nitrogen and
rotting nutrients were great but I noticed very little bug bites and
insects eating the leaves and stems.
Researching the internet I have found organic gardeners us the tobacco
dust for the nicotine use. Its a natural insecticide repellant. I have
found after researching the matter online just add a teaspoon of
tobacco dust,teaspoon if black pepper and add water and a few drops of
liquid soap in a 20 oz bottle of water and spray on home and garden
plants for a insecticide and fertilizer.
Please search online for tobacco dust and its uses in your gardening.

I was raised on a farm and we used the remaining tobacco staulks and
waste and spread over the fields as a fertilizer and tilled under for
the next years crop. The leaves was saved and sold to the tobaco
markets. Around the edges of the field the grass was always greener
where the staulks had rotten though the winter.
After using the tobacco dust on the pumpkin patch remembering this from
the above story,the leaves were much greener(natural nitrogen etc..) I
noticed also very little bug bites which are very common in pumpkins. I
also experimented with the dust as a turf builder in my yard which had
some hard to grow areas. This worked well also. My flowers around the
porches had done very well also not only with good growth but less bug
activity. I did not let any dust be arould the flowering bulbs as to
not effect pollination with bees.
If anyone knows any information pro or con using tobacco dust which is
finely crushed leaves,stems let this be known on the rec.garden or
