I went out to the backyard this morning and noticed that aphids have rudely settled in, mainly on the rose bushes (without paying rent either!). They are hanging out on the newly formed rose buds, sucking and drinking to their health.
There are a couple small rose bushes near my growing area, but luckily the CP’s seem to be aphid-free.
Do you guys think I should go out and get some Ortho to prevent an aphid attack on my VFT’s or should I just wait and see if they actually attack first? Also, if you think I should act now, should I use Orthene or some of these suggested aphid killers? How should I use the product?
