    I dont use oils cause they make a mess. Because its coming into summer now, i would say your not spraying it all over, or leaving some bits out? I had a kingianum covered in them, and i went thru with my fingers Yuck, but works well

    So you said previously, you used Confidor aerosol. This is the best? Did I read that the aphids lay their eggs in the potting mix? The Dend. that is infested with this bug is in flower, the poor thing looks a mess. The reason that this orchid was attacked, was I moved the pot out of the old shadehouse, which was in poorer light than the shadehouse it is now in, resulting in a little bit of sunburn on the leaves, and that I think is why the aphids attacked. On a plant that was feeling a little bit down. Oh, cute kid in the Avatar, is that you?

    Ive never heard of them doing that, but maybe in the garden? Ive always seen the eggs layed on the reverse side of the leaves (my Tamarillo is a great example!), and i roll my fingers along and squish them all And yea, thats me! Im sure those strawberries were good...sorry i didnt save any Annette
