Q.Tiny Bugs All Over Hyacinth Bean Vine Pods And Stems

Zone Zone 7 | paulac23 added on October 22, 2020 | Answered

It’s the end of the season and I’m anxiously awaiting the maturation of the pods to harvest for next season, and I noticed that most of the pods and a lot of the vine stems are covered with tiny, mite-sized bugs – should I be concerned and take any action?

It could be aphids or spider mites (but you probably can't see the spider mites). I would first try spraying them with water and see if they fall off. My experience with aphids is they just move out of the spray. I will get a paper towel and carefully wipe them off. Neem oil should help, too.

Great advice - I sprayed the plant with cold water on the strongest setting and that removed them! Glad I didn't need to use any pesticides or chemicals.
