Using Lemon Juice to Kill Bugs on Houseplants

0 0EmailPrintFollow

Is it OK that I sprayed a mixture of lemon juice and water on a houseplant to kill bugs? Will the plant die?

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.
