aphids

I know the large green bug is a different species to the aphids but as it was the first day of school holidays, it tickled my fancy that Mum had taken the kids out for the day.

"It happens every time I take them out, all they want to do is eat, it costs me a fortune, then they want to bring all their friends....."

Mix water and soap and spray the plant, works every time for me.

Thanks the great shot of aphids. Aphids are tiny insects that have piercing/sucking mouth parts. Aphids also spread disease by moving from one plant to another. Even without resorting to chemical methods, they're not difficult to get rid of. Spray a strong jet of water directly onto the affected area of the plant. The stream will wash the insects off. This is the easiest way to control aphids.
