I give up. The aphids win. no matter how much I spray my pepper plants, or what I use, I can’t get rid of them. I’ve tried the usual home remedies (solution of dish soap,) commercial insecticidal soaps, you name it. it kills them, then a couple of days later there’s even more. The plants are distressed and stopped fruit development. I sprayed them all a few days ago, and today there are a bunch of shriveled aphid corpses along side shitloads of new live ones.
I’m beginning to hate these fuckers as much as yellow jackets. I’m about to the point of lighting the grill and just incinerating everything.
