Further Question On Treating Aphids

Anonymous added on May 23, 2011 | Answered

I was wondering if you use the solution suggested on your site to treat aphids, can you also add ladybirds to the plant or does the solution (oil, water, detergent) damage or interfere with the ladybirds as well?

    I would do one or the other. Doing both can hurt the ladybirds if they are on the plant.
