Jim, Here is a good mix that works well...
2-3 garlic bulbs (about 6-10 cloves per bulb)
6 large or 12 smaller hot chilli peppers (any variety will do, or if unavailable try 1-2 tablespoon hot chilli powder)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoons of liquid detergent
7 cups water. (Use about 2-3 cups in the blender, and add the rest later)
Put the whole list into a blender and puree well, then strain through muslin, a coffee filter or similar. Pour what you need into a spray bottle for use and keep the rest in jars with lids on in a cabinet or on a shelf somewhere, well labeled. This mixture needs to be re-sprayed frequently, such as after rain and dew. It's best to spray every few days until there's no sign of pests, then about every week to 10 days for any eggs or larvae that may have hatched out. If you have trouble with this hurting young plants, adjust the concentrations of the ingredients until you find a mix that suits your needs.
