Bugs ate my hot peppers last summer they had holes in them. I don't know what the bugs were, I didn't see any thing on the plants. I would like some ideas on what to use so they don't eat them this summer. They were Jalapenos Thanks for your help.

6 Jalapeños

*Grind all ingredients in blender let set.
* Boil 4 Quarts of water to raging boil.
Put Ingredients in one (1) Gallon (Wide Mouth) Jug or Equivalent.
Pour Hot water in on top, let stand 48 hours.
Strain mix through panty hose.(NOT wife’s good ones! Ya could get hurt)
Mix will yield one gallon that can be mixed in 2 ½ gal sprayer.(Add cool water to fill line)
***Spray New and growing plants until fruit starts to grow well.
There is not a bug or critter around that will bother you garden.
