Aphids on seedlings
« on: October 08, 2018, 07:24:06 am »
Iíve been lucky to be mostly chemical free in my garden, but I finally got a plague of aphids.

They are on my seedlings indoors.  Do I toss the lot and start over?  What should I use?  Iíve got about 3 weeks until last frost day.

I'd take a squirt bottle and try to flush them off. They should be outside already in a shady spot.
Why Google, when you have me?

Just water?  Iíve been squishing by hand and knocking them off, but they just keep coming back.

They should be outside already in a shady spot.

Why a shady spot?  Do you mean bring them in at night so they donít freeze at night?
