Cheap Easy Non-Toxic Aphids Control

Whether one lives in Tampa or Denver or Tennessee, mid-summer can see aphids reach plague proportions on a newly established garden (less than 3 years is my feel) that has no or insufficient numbers of aphid predators like lacewings, trichogramma wasps or lady bugs. So in the meantime, as those populations increase, you can use a sharp spray of water from your garden hose nozzle to blast them off your crops....they are very sluggish and unlikely to make it back up onto your plants by ants who raise them for their "honey dew" as we do cattle for milk. The spray also rinses off dust and spider mites. John
