    Create a homemade oil spray using 1 tablespoon of dish soap and 1 cup of cooking oil from a newly open bottle of oil. This concentrated liquid must be mixed with water before use with a ratio of 4 teaspoons of oil mixture to 1 pint of water. Until you are ready to use it, store the concentrated oil mixture in a glass jar in a dark, dry and cool location. Apply a liberal mist of the homemade oil spray to the vegetables once every seven days to thoroughly control the pests.
