    Similarly from overgrow FAQ: watch out for TMV though..: Never done it, never had whitefly:

    Never spray with HIDs on, and use appropriate protective gear Other homemade chemicals If you smoke cigarettes, you can also make a spray with a small amount of dish soap, and some tobacco. The nicotine is extremely toxic, and will kill the bugs if they come in contact with it. Break a bunch of cigarettes up and soak the tobacco in water overnight. Beware of the possibility of TMV (tobacco mosaic virus), unless you boil your solution for ~20 minutes (after adding the tobacco) to kill the virus. Let cool, add your few drops of detergent and voila. Strain it, spray it

    it will kill most of them but it is definitely not a cure and they will be back.

    will this work or no?

    Yes it will. It will work to control them like all other natural methods, but it is a never ending cycle.

    To kill them once and finally, use a No Pest Strip or Avid. Search man. Read the thread "spider mites".
