Aphids on a kalanchoe plant

Zone Southan, Warwickshire | fedgarlor added on April 22, 2018 | Answered

I've a kalanchoe plant that gas been very healthy and flowering for ages. However, of late I have noticed that the leaves, and the sorrunding area where the plant stands, are very aticky, and there are very small black flyes. I'm not sure what this is and, therefore, don't know what to treat it with. Please, can you help? Thank you in advance. Regards, M. Hyland

It could be aphids, from what you describe. If you can send a photo, then I would know for sure if it is. In the meantime you can use this article to get you started: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/insects/homemade-aphid-control.htm
