Try using Alcohol and Water spray instead....that'll get the bugs

A mixture that does work and you can buy at the store uses cayenne pepper diluted with water and has a little dish soap so it sticks to the leaves. It will kill spider mites and scale and mealy bugs to name a few. It is non toxic and inexpensive.

I don't think it will hurt the plant, but I doubt that it will kill any bugs.
