Neil,

I must respectfully suggest that adding vinegar to your spray mix
resulted in a net positive only due to the buffering of your water's
pH, which resulted in greater efficacy of the diluted insecticidal
solution-- and not due to some acidic dissolution of body parts.
May I venture a guess that your tap has a somewhat high pH/
alkalinity/ hardness ?

In any event, if adding vinegar to your spray results in mealy slaying
synergistic pest control with no visible phytotoxicity, just keep
doing it
whatever the reason!

Well, it was Balsamic ! ;-)
