2. DEDICATIONWe dedicate this Investigatory Project to our community andour environment to help lessen the problem of pollution. Wealso dedicate this project to our parents because they are thereason why we strive to make this project successful. 3. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTThe researchers would like to thank first and foremost the LordGod Almighty for His never ending grace; Our teachers forgiving us the knowledge and advice to finish this project withease and also to our loving parents who are always there forfinancial support and they were the ones who showered uswith encouragement in order for us to really do our best on thisproject. Without these people, this project wouldnt besuccessful or possible. Thats why we would like to say, Thankyou and May God Almighty bless us all. 4. ABSTRACTGinger ( ZingiberOfficinalis) and Vinegar ismade as anorganic insecticide. Ginger is a tropical plant that was spreadaround the tropical world during the colonial days. In Africa,Asia, or South America, and many hot spots between thosecontinents, locals have taken to using ginger widely in medicineand food. The entire ginger family is rich in oils that both killmicro-critters and stimulate the immune system to do thesame. The ways it stimulates the body are many, and, whetheradded to food or taken as a medicinal tea, ginger makes yourbody a little bit stronger and a little bit better and able to resistthe damaging forces of nature. The ginger is one of thematerials needed to make the organic insecticide. It is choppedand since its oils can kill micro-critters it is very useful in killingvarious insects. Vinegar is the all-natural liquid which is the onethat kills the insects when made contact. And if you put theginger and vinegar together and put them in a spray bottle youwill create the organic insecticide. And when tested it iseffective on many insects. Just spray on an insect and you willsee the results. Many insecticides are made today. And most ofthem are made with toxic chemicals which can harm theenvironment. This product that we made is safe and good forour environment since there are no toxic chemicals it is cheapand easy to make and also to use. 5.

BIBLIOGRAPHYPICTURESIntroductionWe can grow healthful food without depending too much ontoxic chemicals and chemical fertilizers with NATURALORGANIC AND BIOLOGICAL FARMING systems. The knowledgeand simple but practical technology in this manuscript can saveyour crops and help you earn more from your garden and farm.Lets return to the Natural ways. 9. Statement of the Problem1. Which of the trials are most effective on insects?2. What will happen to the insects because of theinsecticide?3. What will happen to the plants if it is used on them?4. Is it safe on plants?5. What kind of insects will it kill? 10. Hypothesis1. The first trial is the most effective among the 4 trials.2. The insects will be killed.3.The plants will not get damaged and it will be insect-free.4. Yes.5. It can kill ants, flies, mosquitos, snails and cockroaches. 11. ObjectiveTo produce insecticide out of vinegar and ginger is ourobjective. In order to create natural mixture this can killinsects. Because it is natural, it cannot harm ourenvironment unlike other insect killers which can alsoharm our environment. 12. Significance of the study The researchers have made this organic insect killerout of ginger and vinegar to create an environmentfriendly substance. Since, our environment is at stakebecause of pollutions. One of these pollutions is on air. Ifyouhavent noticed our planet is deteriorating because ofthis. And one of the causes of air pollutions is theinsecticides and pesticides which have harmful chemicals.We all know that most of the insecticides and pesticidesused today contain those harmful chemicals. To lessen theproblem of air pollution, the researchers have made thisorganic insecticide. 13. Review Related LiteratureOur product is all organic and since it is safe to use andeffective it is a great replacement on those toxic insecticide.Ginger and Vinegar are the main ingredients of our product.Ginger has oils in which can help kill insects and vinegar as wellhas acid that also kill insects.Thats why this project is much ofuse to you especially when it comes to gardening. 14. Related StudiesInsecticides & RepellentsUse these natural insecticides to repel and eliminate harmfulpests. The following categories of products use botanicals orplant extracts that are applied to plant foliage. Naturalinsecticides combat insects upon contact or through ingestion.Use as part of an Integrated Pest Management program whichincludes traps for monitoring and capturing pests and beneficialinsects and organisms to control pests in their developingstages. Enhancing fertility programs with natural fertilizers andsoil amendments will increase plants health and resistance toall types of pests in your home or garden including weeds anddiseases. 15. Conceptual Framework (Concept and Theory)Ginger and Vinegar Chopping Mixing Ready for TestingProduct 16. Research MethodologyMaterials:Chopping BoardGinger and4 spraybottlesVinegarKnife Measuring CupsWater and SpoonsProcedureCollect or prepare the materials needed.Chop theginger.Put 3 tablespoons of the chopped ginger inside the4 spray bottles evenly.In the 1stspray bottle pour 2 cups ofvinegar inside, in the 2nd spray bottle add 2 cups of vinegarand cup of water, in the 3rdspray bottle put 2 cupsvinegar and 1 cup of water, and in the 4th bottle put 2 cupsof vinegar and 1 cup of water.After putting theingredients in each perspective bottle try several trials inyour garden.Find out which is the more effective amongthe trials.Record your observation. 17. Scope of the Study Vinegar is a liquid substance consisting mainly of acetic acidand water, the acetic acid being produced through thefermentation of ethanol by acetic acid bacteria. It is todaymainly used in the kitchen as a general cooking ingredient, buthistorically, as the most easily available mild acid, it had a greatvariety of industrial, medical, and domestic uses, some of which(such as a general household cleanser) are still promoted today.Commercial vinegar is produced either by fast or slowfermentation processes. In general, slow methods are usedwith traditional vinegars, and fermentation proceeds slowlyover the course of weeks or months. The longer fermentationperiod allows for the accumulation of a nontoxic slimecomposed of acetic acid bacteria. Fast methods add mother ofvinegar to the source liquid before adding air using a venturipump system or a turbine to promote oxygenation to obtainthe fastest fermentation. In fast production processes, vinegarmay be produced in a period ranging from 20 hours to threedays. And ginger or ginger root is the rhizome of the plantZingiberofficinale, consumed as a delicacy, medicine, or spice. Itlends its name to its genus and family (Zingiberaceae). Other 18. notable members of this plant family are turmeric, cardamom,and galangal. These two studies come up to make an organicinsect killer.Delimitations of the StudyThe delimitations of the researchers study is that the studycouldnt be made more effective since the time given wasntenough. If there was more time the researchers would have theadvantage of making more experiments on the study. And alsowe couldnt test it on other insects since we couldnt find anyother insects. 19. Definition of TermsInsecticides- are a pesticide used against insects. They includeovicides and larvicides used against the eggs and larvae ofinsects respectively. Insecticides are used in agriculture,medicine, industry and the household. The use of insecticides isbelieved to be one of the major factors behind the increase inagricultural productivity in the 20th century. Nearly allinsecticides have the potential to significantly alter ecosystems;many are toxic to humans; and others are concentrated in thefood chain.Ginger - or ginger root is the rhizome of the plantZingiberofficinale, consumed as a delicacy, medicine, or spice.
