Using a homemade hot pepper spray (recipe below) on aphids on my tropical milkweed. I sprayed 2 different sections of milkweed. The first section gets minimal direct sunlight, & you can see after being sprayed the aphids are still on the milkweed, but not moving. The second section gets direct sunlight & the aphids appear to be dried. Either way this hot pepper spray works for me. Anyone else ever use this spray or something similar? ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️ For this hot pepper pest control spray you will need: 1️⃣. 6 peppers 2️⃣. 3 tbsp mineral oil 3️⃣. 3 tbsp non detergent dish soap 4️⃣. 1 pint of water Hot Pepper Spray: ➡️Slice 6 peppers (wear gloves) & combine with 3 tbsp of mineral oil in a container & allow to soak 48 hours ➡️Next, add a pint of water & 3 tbsp non- detergent dish soap to pepper jar ➡️Strain peppers out of solution using cheese cloth or pantyhose & into sealable container. ➡️ For pest control use 2 tablespoons of this hot pepper mixture & add to a pint of water. ➡️Best practice is to spray a leaf or 2 to check for plant sensitivity ➡️Spray pest infested leaves in morning & evening. Repeat as needed ___________________________________________________ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ #EdibleLandscaping #EdibleLandscape #Permaculture #SustainableLandscaping #SustainableGardening #SustainableFood #GrowYourOwn #Houston #MasterGardener #GardenCoach #Zone9A #FallGarden #TheHappyGardeningLife #UrbanGardening #UrbanGarden #EpicGardening #GardenGram #OrganicGarden #SundayFunday #MyGardenToday #OrganicPestControl #OrganicGardening #Milkweed #Aphids #Pests #GardeningTips #Gardening101 #GardeningLife #GardenHacks #GardenTips

Aphids, soft bodied insects, are likely the most common indoor houseplant pest. They tend to be a light green in color but do vary from white to black. They prefer food crops rather than typical tropical houseplants. Aphids reproduce asexually and rapidly. Sounds strange but the females are born pregnant. They give birth to live hungry young at a rate of 4-8 offsprings per day. They pierce plants with their mouth parts. Aphids also excrete a sticky substance from their rear which often attracts ants. . Pinch or prune off any badly infested stems. Then, take your infected plant outside and spray it vigorously with a hose. If it is too cold outside, carefully take it into your shower. Spray it vigorously with water. If it is a young plant or delicate, spray in short, strong bursts. If there are a few aphids remaining on the plant, crush them with your fingers. Do this every few days until you have them under control. . If they keep coming back, you may want to purchase some green lacewing larvae. Oh my, how they love aphids. . I will be posting other indoor plant pests in the next couple days…keep watching or go back to our home page if you miss one. .

Not stoked on the aphid infestation on our #pomelo, but I was stoked to see the beneficial insects coming to the rescue! First photo shows the green #lacewing larva aka the aphid lion. Destroyer of #aphids! (Watch out though, they bite humans too I’ve discovered first hand. 😟) Next photo shows the pretty little #ladybug eggs neatly lined up like orange bowling pins. 🎳 The ladybugs and their larva are great for aphid clean up too! Third photo is probably the egg laying ladybug herself. Hope they’re hungry! 👾🐞🦁

When a few wooly aphids decide to lay a few eggs, they can turn into groups of thousands on just one plant. As they consume plant sap while swinging in the wind, they then excrete sweet honeydew for the rest of the bug kingdom to consume. Also known as the “Fluffer fairies”!

Aphids on my Rose of Sharon bushes 😩 Instead of going the chemical route, I decided to try ladybugs 🐞 They’re loving the all-you-can-eat-buffet we have for them! One ladybug can eat about 50 aphids per day. We sprinkled approx. 3,000 ladybugs, so even though we’ll lose some (you’re welcome, neighbors!) that should get rid of thousands of aphids and, hopefully, we’ll turn into a ladybug nursery and have babies for generations to eat the bad buggies! P.S. The bumble bees 🐝 are loving my fat lavender bunch. P.P.S. They say to sprinkle the ladybugs onto a freshly watered plant when it’s cool, like dusk or dawn. Well, we all know I don’t wake up early, so we waited until sunset, watered the plants (so they can drink), and sprinkled them out. The last few pics are this morning during bunk check 😉 #aphids #ladybugs #naturalpestcontrol

Two ladybugs making babybugs 👼. • Each eating up to 5,000 aphids (sap sucking pests) in their lifetime, with scales, mites and white flies (more pests) also apart of their diet, they're always a welcome site in any garden. • To attract ladybugs to your space, it usually means sacrificing a few plants to pests for a season or so. They proliferate where food (pests) are abundant, and after they take up residence, they'll manage and balance the pest populations to beneficial levels. • The more we outsource to nature, the less work we have to do, and the more resilient our systems become 🌳. • • • #pestmanagement #aphids #ladybugs #outsourcetonature #ecosystems #permaculture #urbanpermaculture #capetown #guerillahouse

My hibiscus flower plant is opening one flower every 6 to 10 days for now. Normally in the hot summer with frequent rains she would open about 4 to 5 flowers per 2 weeks. ---- The Aphid Bugs have taken over the unopened flower buds, so I had to spray those buds. So those aphids should be dead by 3 days from now. --- With this cool weather there hasn't been any bees or butterflies, so spraying the plants are not a problem. . . #hibiscus #orangehibiscus #aphids #whitehothibiscus

IPM - integrated pest management on the rooftop of my restaurant using my special instrument. I must make sure that everybody is eating kosher lol. That's a lot of responsibility on my shoulders. ( bugs are not kosher). Those celery plants are so infested with aphids and thus I'm going to introduce that garden with massive amounts of my favorite parasitoid wasps. It's gonna be even more interesting under the microscope soon. #telaviv #agriculture #horticulture #urbangarden #rooftop #restaurant #food #control #ipm #aphids #wasp #biocontrol #biology #action #kosher #science #qa #gardening #instrument #agronomist #responsibility #biology #edibles #scientists #research

Beech Blight Aphids (Grylloprociphilus imbricator) Beech blight aphids are small insects that feed on the sap of American beech trees. When disturbed or threatened they raise their backs and sway sideways. This is why some call them the "boogie woogie" aphids. They do not typically cause much damage to the trees, though larger infestations can cause dieback of the infected limbs. #neature #naturephotography #naturewalk #hiking #hikingadventures #wildlife #ecology #environmentaleducation #lookwhatifound #pathlesstraveled #aphids #dendrology #entomology #followme #notallwhowanderarelost #dailyphoto

Hamamelis virginiana still flowering a few weeks ago, and unable to let go of summer’s leaves. The little black witch hat is a gall formed by witch-hazel cone gall aphids (Hormaphis hamamelidis) who use it as a restaurant, home, and love shack. 🧙‍♀️🍂 The ‘witch’ in witch-hazel doesn’t have anything to do with wise women (except in folk etymologies), but seems to come from words meaning ‘pliant’ or ‘bendable’. Think ‘wicker’, ‘wych wood’, ‘wicket’, ‘weak’, and even ‘vicissitude’. 📖 • • • • • #witchhazel #hamamelis #hamamelisvirginiana #witchy #witchythings #etymology #wychwood #aphids #galls #hormaphishamamelidis #bringmeashrubbery #floranovaeangliae #nature #exploringnature #naturalist #botany #botanist #gooutside

My plants are being attacked and I'm looking for proven effective organic ways to combat them. Please feel free to share yours. I've seen several methods but the fastest I can use right away is a mixture of vinegar and liquid dishwashing soap. Now I'm not sure if this dishwashing is still organic but I'm giving it a shot. I just sprayed it on and saw spider webs and flying insects. Hopefully it scares them away. #aphids #mealybugs #organicpesticide #organicinsecticide #backyardgardening

It may be hard to see this as a #ladybird, but it is. Rhyzobius forestieri is an 'inconspicuous ladybird' which was first recorded in the UK a few years ago. It is a predatory ladybird which eats #aphids and is slightly smaller than the 16 spot. #rhyzobius #inconspicuousladybird #coccinellidae #insects_of_our_world #creepycrawlies #kings_insects

​Each time you water your houseplants, inspect both the top and underside of the leaves for signs of pests or disease. 🌿 ​5 Quick Tips for Keeping Houseplants Healthy: 🌿* Inspect plants before bringing them indoors; whether they're newly purchased or they've spent the summer outdoors. ​If you see signs of pests, treat the plant and isolate it from your other plants until you have eliminated the problem.🌿 * Expect new plants to drop some leaves or otherwise show symptoms of shock as you move them from the nursery to your home — especially if light levels in your home are significantly different. 🌿* Avoid placing plants in trouble spots, where temperature fluctuate or stay too warm or too cold. 🌿* Provide the right light. Plants that prefer bright light will thrive in a south-facing window. East-and west-facing windows have moderate sun. North windows have very little sun. Plants that require high light levels will do best under a grow light. 🌿* Remember that heating systems can dry out the air in winter. You can provide a little extra humidity with a pebble tray and some misting. . . . . . . #lovegardeners #houseplantcare #indoorplants #pests #disease #talktoplants #tropicalplants #aphids #neem #growlights #indoorlife #greenup #greenlife #plantsinthehouse #indoorgardens #adviceforplants

You perhaps are wondering if my #rosemary plants were cleaned from #aphids after I washed them off 5 days ago, aren't you? The bad news is that the #aphids reappeared again on the same plant AND they spreaded over to the neighboring #rosemary 😠 The good news is that it's not late to give them another treatment, I hope this time it will be more effective. I added drops of #peppermint and #oregano essential oils to a quart of water and sprayed over the whole plant, not only on infected areas. I have to reapply the same treatment at least twice to get rid of aphids. Also to prevent the occurrence of the diseases on #rosemary plants I move them to the brighter room to improve the lighting and space them apart to increase air circulation. Thank you for watching my fight with #aphids 😊 P.S. and big thanks to @irishjay13 for giving a good tip on using #essentialoils 💚😊

New Year's Resolution - "I will scout my crop thoroughly and consistently!" . The most important starting point for any of our new clients is getting a positive pest ID. Proper diagnoses lead to proper prescriptive interventions; biocontrols are no different. Scouting thoroughly and on a regular schedule will not only help you get a positive ID on what you are dealing with, it will greatly aid in your ability to respond effectively using biocontrols before the issue gets out of hand. Because proper scouting is such an important component of your overall IPM program, any first-time online orders (over $200) for the remainder of this month will receive a free 10x20mm & 20x11mm handheld field lens/scope, with LED light. . #beneficialinsects #cannabis   #cannabis #cannabisculture #marijuana #medicalmarijuana #mmj #permaculture #beneficialinsects #cannabis #cannabisculture #marijuana #medicalmarijuana #mmj   #biologicalcontrol #persimilis #russetmites #pestid #scouting #IPM #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #naturalenemies #andersoni #californicus #aphids #thrips #i502 #californiacannabis #atheta #rootaphids

What a nice sight seeing this guy finally arrive at our crop. We're lucky enough to have ladybirds swarm our pepper plants every season to keep things in check without any major pest infestation. The ladybugs were late to arrive this season which got us worried and made us think of artificially introducing them! Ladybirds (ladybugs) are beneficial predators for chilli plants and while these mature adults don't actually do much feeding on pests, it's their larvae that eat pests such as aphids, up to 50 a day per larvae! Who needs insecticide?

I love looking at the small world. I found this on a plant in my front yard. How many different insect species do you see here? You can find the answer below and with information in my story. . Aphids feed on plants with sucking mouthparts. They suck up a bunch of plant fluids and nutrients. Plant fluids are mostly water, so the aphids filter out the nutrients and excrete large amounts of sugary water, also known as honeydew. . The ants are there to drink up the honeydew because of the sugar. In turn, some ants develop special relationships with the aphids. They'll protect the aphids from predators and parasitoids. Without natural control, the aphids multiply rapidly and produce even more honeydew. It's a vicious cycle for the plants. . Unbeknownst to the ants, a sneaky wasp infiltrated the colony of aphids. The wasp inserted an egg into aphids it could safely reach. The eggs hatch inside the aphids and slowly consume the aphid innards. As the young wasp larva matures, it pupates in the aphid's body. The wasp will cut a hole in the now dead, brown aphid and emerge. . Short story: there are three species. Aphids, wasps, and ants make for an interesting triangle of interactions. . #ip_insects #kings_insects #uwn_insect #insectmagazine #invert_macro #macrointhewild #science #entomology #Ants #Aphids #Wasps #canon #photography #macrophotography #macro #nature #neature #pocket_family #pocket_insects #pocket_macro #insects_of_our_world #mat_macro_insects #flowersofinstagram #Missouri

I had an issue with aphids several weeks ago. So, I researched and read that onions can deter this pest. I transplanted a few onions into this patch of greens and I’m seeing improvement! Aphids are still around but nowhere near the infestation earlier. Do you practice companion planting? And if so, I would enjoy hearing about your experiences.

Soybean aphids in Manitoba are becoming insecticide-resistant, as it’s estimated that insecticides killed just 15 per cent of aphids in some Manitoba fields last year. Many of the aphids are thought to be coming from America where the excess use of pesticides is a concern. Switching up the types of pesticides used, spraying only when necessary, and spraying at recommended rates are the key strategies that some growers didn’t use which led to the resistance. Get more info about the aphid resistance in our digital edition. Photo credit: University of Minnesota. #aphids #soybeans #insecticide #resistance #westernproducer
