repellent question

by Gary
(Houston,TX)

I am curious to know if using these home made repellents could burn or damage the plant or leaves.

I used 3 eggs, quart or so of 2% milk, cayenne pepper, water, dish soap, onion, and jalapeno pepper seeds. Mixed in gallon milk jug and letting sit for a couple days before spraying on the tree leaves and trunk.
I just don't want to damage or kill my pear, grapefruit, orange, lime, lemon and avocado trees.

I am a Horticulturist. Most of these recipes shouldn't hurt your plants. The main thing to watch for would be the pepper juice. You shouldnt apply the recipes in the heat of the day. Put them on early in the morning or in the evening to reduce the chance of burning. The urine, eggs, dish soap, eggs, pepper or onion shouldn't hurt the plants. If you were using liquid ghost pepper juice or something like that I would worry about burn.
