Aphid alert 2012

March 3, 2012

Just like last year February-March are the months of the Chiang Mai aphids. Be careful to protect young shoots and flowers as these soft tissues are easy to penetrate for the aphids. The neem recipe I published last year works well, but soap water or simply high pressure water may sometimes reduce the attack until the cavalry arrives (predatory insects and aphid diseases).

Good luck in your gardens!
