Aphid Prevention Before Planting

Anonymous added on March 2, 2014 | Answered

Aphids came in and KILLED our vegetable garden mid season last year. Is there anything that I can do before I plant to prevent them this year? We had 54 successful years before them. Can too much compost attract them? Still trying to figure out what attracted them.
