Alright so the aphids are back and they’re not alone. The ants and aphids are taking full advantage of their symbiotic relationship on my VFTs. I have tried spraying them off, drowning them; I even moved the fortress away from the ant trial it was neighboring, but no luck! New traps are now growing slightly deformed, and I worry that it may get worse.
So I have decided to use an insecticide to kill the little buggers and to keep them away… permanently.
-What specific product would you recommend? I know several of you have mentioned Ortho, but what is the specific product I should use? Or can I simply use anything that is designated for aphid control?
-How should I use/apply it? Can I follow the directions on the product’s label or will I need to dilute it, etc.? Does it come in a solid or liquid form?
I appreciate the help!
