Q.Systemic Aphid Control

Anonymous added on April 29, 2011 | Answered

Is there a systemic aphid control product available in Canada? Better yet, a natural solution (other than spraying the plant with water) would be great. My affected plant is a honeysuckle.

Well believe it or not, Lady bugs are really good for aphid control, their main diet is aphids, lol. You can get lady bugs now online I believe or find out where in your town. I have also used a light soapy water solution to spray on the affected plants as well. You can just use two to three drops of your dish liquid in a bottle of water, small spray bottle. Hope this helps.
