Aphids Again

Just a few aphids....

Thought we were done with aphids for the season, but they're baaaccckk! We've tried just about everything, but always fall back on mechanical methods--blasting off with water, or squishing if there are just a few.

Keep reading in the journals that aphids and other insects that are real nuisances in commercial growing are becoming resistant to many products that have been used in the past. Some growers are maintaining stocks of "wild" non-resistant aphids to breed back into their greenhouse pests. 

This is becoming the year of the bug...
....multiply overnight
