Soak about a gallon of bark in a five gallon pail, stirring frequently
for about a week...then evaporate the liquid to a concentrate of about
3/4 of a gallon.   Add about 30 drops of ivory dishsoap or some other
soap to make it sticky and spray away.

arsenic, etc?  This is important to those of us who which to keep spraying 
ANYTHING to a minimum by encouraging natural "controls."
