Aphids, Homemade Receipe to Get Rid of Them

daveh added on August 13, 2013 | Answered

My super petunia hanging plant is loaded with little green aphids and I need to find out the best way to get rid of them. I've tried a product called Safer Insect Killing soap but it does not seem to help. Also, the leaves of the plant are also covered with loads of white colored slivers of something. Are these dead aphids?

Yes, dead aphid body exoskeletons. Homemade remedy, soapy water, sprayed daily for 3 weeks. Neem oil or other insecticide labeled for both petunias and aphids...used according to package directions. Good luck, they are bad little buggers!
