I've got a couple questions about spraying cheyenne pepper and things like that on veggies and strawberries to control pests.
I have some strawberry plants in an old wash tub that are being raided by critters (chipmunks maybe? I've seen several in the yard). The strawberries never get the chance to ripen before they're eaten. There are also holes being dug in there. And my peppers (just the leaves right now) in the garden are starting to get eaten (aphids?).
So #1 Will the spray help save my strawberries? and what concoction works best?
#2 It will obviously affect the taste of the fruit/veggies when sprayed on them, but what about their taste after being picked and cleaned? Mainly the strawberries.
Any tips and advice is greatly appreciated!
