The research took 1 month for tool and material preparations, pesticide production, pesticide application, and data retrieval. There were three treatments i.e. P0 (without vegetable pesticide), P1 (vegetable pesticide made from the mixture of gamal leaf and tobacco leaf), and P2 (vegetable pesticide made out of soursop leaf. Each treatment was repeated five times. In the treatment, the leaves were soaked in the pesticide according to the prescription, the pesticide was then sprayed to the worm-infected-leaves in the jars before the jars were covered for seven days.
