FARMERS IN INDIA USE COCA-COLA AND PEPSI AS A CHEAPER ALTERNATIVE TO PESTICIDES

The Center for Science and Environment (CSE), which is one of India's leading voluntary agencies, claims that the soft drinks produced in India, including those with the brand names Pepsi and Coca-Cola, contain extremely high levels of pesticide residues, and due to this, farmers use them to fight pests as they are cheaper than the conventional pesticides.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Actually, this will work with any sugary drink. When sprayed on plants it attracts ants which then eat the larvae of pests before they mature into crop-chomping adults.
