Aphids – insects on plants

Aphids commonly appear on flushes of new growth and quite often they will only remain on the plant for a short period of time. Generally, if there are predatory insects in the area such as ladybird larvae, the aphids will be kept under control. In severe cases, spray them with Searles Bug Beater, a natural pyrethrum spray.

For an organic spray to control aphids, use Searles Ecofend Vegetable & Garden Insect & Mite spray
