Nicotine Spray


This helps to control caterpillars, aphids and destructive worms.

1 handful tobacco

1 gallon water

Mix; let stand 24 hours.

Dilute the solution to the color of weak tea. Do not spray on tomato, pepper, eggplant or any other plants that are members of the solanaceous family, since nicotine can kill them.
