Thread: aphids

  1. #9
    Guest
    AT all costs....I would keep aphids away from any plant. The only thing I know to get rid of them is some heavy strenght pesticides and lady bugs ( just don't use at the same time ) and don't use lady bugs on CP's

    Aphids are BADDDDDDDDDDDd news...I had them wipe out some of my veggie crop a few years ago...and I know Rampuppy lost some stuff too!

    That is like playing with fire !

    They are nice and squishy... Good for CPs... As long as they dont suck out their fluide... What if you feed them to... I dont know... It is probably best to not feed them aphids. Bah, i wish you could though...

    They are the grapes of the bug world...
    Ants use them as cows...
    Lady bugs eat them like I do grapes...
    They suck both literally and figurativley...
    Heres a visual aid...

    Aphids should always be removed as far from CP as possible. Don't mess with trying to feed them to your plants, the danger far outweighs the benefit to the plants. Aphidssssss, we hates them, my precious, we hatessss them forever, nassssty bugs. They quickly multiply and spread, and if you have them on one plant, better have a close look at the rest of your collection. Two favorite places are the undersides of the leaves, and on the flower scapes. Strike quickly and well if you find them, and then keep a closer watch on the plants: miss just a couple of them and soon you will be right back to the same problem.
