“I can’t believe I’ve kept this from you for so long,” Kia (@kia_urbangardener) noted at the start of a recent clip.

The gardening guru went on to say that her trick is for those with plants that suffer from aphids, a type of insect that can damage them, or powdery mildew that can often form.

“This is going to be a game changer for you,” she explained, revealing that the trick is whole milk and water combined in a spray.

“Add one part whole milk and one part water,” Kia instructed.

“Put it in a spray bottle, spray it all over your plants.”

Kia noted that if bystanders continue the spraying process consecutively for several days, it works amazingly well on aphids.

The bugs suffocate on the milk fat, according to the TikToker.

“The aphids will actually suffocate on the milk fat,” he said.

Not to mention, the added benefits of mixing milk and water are that the dew provides calcium and protein to the garden.

The video then cut to Kia’s dog, and she jokingly commented that the spray wouldn’t scare any pups away.

Kia’s gardening hack garnered thousands of likes from fans with several asking questions about what minor changes they could make.

“If it’s the fat that’s effective, could you use pure cream? Would that be more effective?” asked a curious user.

The gardening guru responded, noting that it might work, but there may be an unpleasant odor as a consequence.

“Ah, I think it might smell a bit, though it might be worth a try,” she replied.

Another questioned the harmful effects of the spray mixture on bugs that help or don’t cause problems in your garden.

“Will this harm the beneficial insects though? I definitely have an aphid problem, but I don’t want to harm the ladybugs!” exclaimed one onlooker.

Kia noted that the spray should not be sprayed directly on ladybugs and if they spot these insects, they may be in luck as they tend to eat aphids.

“Don’t spray it directly on the ladybugs and you should be fine,” he wrote.

“Though ladybugs should eat your aphids too, so you may not need to try this.”

Other fans noted that they had to try the trick because they had no other options to get rid of the aphids.

“I’m going to try this because I’m desperate. Even my mint and chives have aphids. I don’t know what’s going on,” said one.

The gardening guru pleaded with the user to use the milk and water sprayer for at least three to five days for it to be effective.

“Let me know how it goes. Do it consistently for at least 3-5 days! Keep me posted,” he added.
