spraying lettuce with vinegar get rid of small green worms
Will spraying my lettuce with vinegar get rid of the small green worms? I have never used commercial pest control sprays and have been gardening organically for years. Should I dilute the spray?

It might get rid of the worms but it may also kill your plants. The acidity in vinegar will quickly burn up the plant, even if you dilute it, there is no guarantee that it will not harm the lettuce. Try neem oil instead. It is safe to use and effective. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/problems/pests/neem-oil-uses.htm
