My outdoor babes will be in their third week of flower this coming Sunday.
Yesterday, I found a few aphids in one flower on one plant with a few carriers.
I had eco-oil pesticide on hand so I sprayed both plants then this morning we have had a light drizzle of rain (probably washed off with the rain).
This arvo I’ve had another look. I’ve since found more on a large fan leaf and deep in a few flowers on a few stems. I’ve picked off aphids from the flowers and pruned a couple leaves that were aphid harbouring.
I’m aware of the ant aphid relationship but there are no ants in the area.
I’m also assuming the second plant will also be harbouring some aphids even though I have not seen any yet.
So, does anyone have any go to remedies to get rid of these aphids from flowering plants that will have nil or negligible impact on the flowers? Any advice?
Looking forward to reading your thoughts.
