I have a Mulberry tree which is infested heavily be whiteflies. First I tried using white vinegar and water [1:1] and it did not work.

I tried now using vinegar / liquid soap/wormcasting tea.[1:1:1] and it kill not only the whiteflies but small grasshopper and small caterpillars.

See photos.

1] The stem heavily infested with white flies before applying the solutions.

 

After the applications of the solution.

 

Also saw a grasshopper .

 

And it was killed in a few minutes.

Same with this group of caterpillar.

I have not tried on veggie - maybe have to reduce the white vinegar % should it burned the leaves - have to try it out.

Cheers,

BMB Albert
