The Q&A Archives: Looking For Hot Pepper Wax Spray

Question: I have heard of hot pepper wax spray for pest control but I have been unable to find it or find out more about it. I heard about it on a radio show, The Garden Hotline. Can you tell me about it and where it is available?

Answer: Hot pepper wax spray can be used to control aphids, whiteflies, mealy bugs, cabbage loopers, spider mites, lace bugs, and many other soft bodied insects. The wax causes the spray to stick to the foliage and the pepper repels the pest. It is available from Pinetree Garden Seeds, or Telephone 207-926-3400 FAX 1-888-52 SEEDS
