Aphids: They Can Invade Anytime!

Aphid infestations can pop up at different times of year, depending on the weather.  Aphids are tiny, soft-bodied insects that suck water and nutrients from of your plants. You'll often find them on crape myrtles, vegetable plants and roses, but they can attack a variety of garden plants. Outbreaks are common in late winter and early spring, but can also happen in early summer if weather is mild and rainy.

Luckily, while they can multiply quickly, they are easy to control with organic methods. Release ladybugs in spring and summer Their larvae will devour the aphids! You can also try planting companion plants in the garden that aphids are thought to dislike, such as garlic, chives, onion and mint. High pressure water blasts from a hose will also destroy most of the aphids.
