Has one a safe recipe that kills Aphids with out harming their natural predators.
Safe sprays are like anti-ageing creams. We'd all like to find one.
i use a weak solution of washing up liquid & water or just spray them off with a hosepipe for a really safe solution
Yes I have found diluted washing up liquid works well too.
Trouble is they are sticky lil blighters and hang on tight!!
you need a kids nerf gun BLT hahaha i use the spray on my bottle on directional jet, it's a bit more powerful that just the spray
Anything that kills aphids also kills helpful predators. If you can stand the smell, then garlic spray deters them - google for recipe. You can also squish them with your fingertips or blast them witha spray from a hosepipe.
However, the best thing is to feed the plants with organic products such as pelleted chicken manure of blood fish and bone which help maintain healthy micro-organisms in the soil as well as feeding the plants. This means your plants will be strong enough to cope with an aphid infestation until the good guys - ladybirds and their larvae, hoverflies and garden birds such as tots and sparrows arrive to hoover up the aphids and maintain a balance.
Thank you to all. I've picked up some useful gardening tips and beauty to. Ceres may be if I run my fingers through them and squish em added to base cream. I may have found that elusive anti aging cream.
