Okra with aphids

Anonymous added on August 13, 2015 | Answered

Aphids are stunting my okra plants. Let it go a month to see if beneficials would show up, but they didn't. I tried a tomato leaf solution as a natural remedy without evident results. Have just powdered them with "8" but hate to use poison.

I recommend using neem oil spray to treat the aphids. It is organic, safe to use and shouldn't harm the beneficials either. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/problems/pests/neem-oil-uses.htm
