Q.How To Kill Yellow Aphids On My 30 Year Old Hoya Plant?

Zone Barnegat, NJ | Hojolly added on April 2, 2024 | Answered

Over the past few months I’ve followed the recommendations I read from gardening sites. They recommend to use a strong plain water sprayer to knock off the bugs. Let the plant dry then make a mixture of water and Neeme oil and spray (top of the leaves, vines and underneath the leaves) every other day. So far this has NOT BEEN WORKING. I’m to the point where I feel I need to do something more drastic. Repot? Use a chemical spray? Please help me! I’ve had this plant since the 1970’s and I’m very attached to it!
