White fly control

Hello everyone in wellington.
I had whiteflies in my coconut and guava trees. My coconut trees are young and so they are not that tall.
I spent 100 dollars for all sorts of pesticides including ones that are for systemic control. The whiteflies were killing the leaves.
I found a solution., I am a medical doctor so I happen to know how chemicals work in an animal.
So, after giving serious thoughts, I sprayed all the plants with 5% vinegar with red pepper powder. The vinegar is acid. It will cause acidosis leading to death. The red pepper has capsaicin. It will affect the nerves. 2 days later, there is 0 whitefly in all the plants. Wow/...please try it. Use a pressure sprayer.
