An indispensable assistant to fight with Medvedka

I would be very happy if my review will be useful to someone and help. I live with my family in the village. We have our own garden. And in that year there was just a nightmarish invasion of a Medvedka (popularly Kapustyanka). At what she eats away everything from seeds to seedlings. And in the countryside, summer without harvest is a year without blanks. Soot seedlings, and Medvedka eats her (maximum week and garden in general as no one planted). And the main poison does not take it. I was already tortured. I went to the market for new seedlings. Grandparents and grandmothers are selling cabbage seedlings (beautiful, so big, green), well, it's a sin to just not take. I take it and complain that I’m going to get stuck for the third time, and Medvedka is eating away everything. Grandma tells me: I will teach you how to fight it now. In a pharmacy, you buy ammonia, then dilute it with 10 mg per 10 liters of water. And when you plant seedlings, then you pour half a liter jar under each bush. And everything, and with seedlings will be and with the harvest. I have been doing this for the second year already, and you know, it helps. This year, planted its greenhouse. As I sowed the seeds, poured the bed with a solution of ammonia and I want to say the result on the face (its own seedlings). Now, I buy liquid ammonia in large bottles of 100 mg each) and advise everyone. In my case, a sharp smell, even a plus than a minus.
