They are great to eat straight when you are feeling sour about life. 

 


In Topic: Reducing salt in fermented sauce - how low can i go?

It should drop quite a bit, I'd expect the water to break down some of the salt into sodium and chloride ions...?  I need coffee before I think...I'm using 2% and it seems to be working out...

They are persistent but I've got my entire life to fight them.  Like some of the tips everyone has shared, tape on the stem, hose the plant down, light use of insecticides (after pepper harvest) and cutting the plants way back to limit their distribution. 

 

My scorpion Moruga has white flies on it now and they will face the same fate as their aphid bredren.  Any suggestions for these little @#!$?

 

Appreciate the knowledge sharing!

They are still dead, if they come back I'll be waiting. Good way to vent stess from studying is to sit there and crush aphids on the plant...beer helps yoi develop patience...crushing them improves physical dexterity. I think ive lost my mind.

Fire works well too...hairspray and a lighter.
