How to control aphids

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 a natural and organic spray alternative, use Searles Ecofend Vegetable & Garden Insect & Mite spray.
