Hi,

Dumb question...

Could paw paw be used to make a water (like willow water), that could be
sprayed with a sticker/spreader to make an organic pest spray and or deer
deterent?

Also wonder about Oxcyllic (sp?) acid in rhubarb.  I know that an old
nicotine spray was made from tobbaco for small scale insect control.
Could paw paw and rhubarb be used in a similar fashion?

Just curious.
