ARS researchers in Arizona found that a mix of common liquid dishwashing detergent and cooking oil kills sweetpotato whiteflies, as well as several common home garden pests. At test plots in Maricopa, Arizona, technician Barbara Hefner and biological aide Bryan Merrill spray a cottonfield with a fine mist of vegetable oil and dishwashing detergent.
