I’ve been growing Bin Jolokia peppers as transplants for 3 years. I started growing (and selling) it after hearing that they use it in India to repel the Elephant herds. While I don’t have a problem with Elephants here in Minnesota I was hoping that it would help with the raccoons and deer. The fruit is just too darn hot to work with! hhhmmmm, I wonder if it would work for aphids and whitefly?

In India we grow hot as well as sweet pepper.Both are affected by whitefly and aphids.These insects transmit viral disease in hot pepper also in India.
But yes for organic farming one can use hot pepper paste, garlic and ginger paste along with neem oil as sprays. It is good insect repellent and it is working here. Even against sucking pests.
