Best solution for controling aphids on wintered peppers
I usually overwinter some of my potted chili plants to allow a head start in the spring. Around now, they usually start getting infested with aphids. I do root and branch pruning in the fall before I bring them in. New soil and clean pots as well. Furthermore, I fumigate them for a few days with a safe pesticide within a garbage bag. Doesn't help. I suspect the aphids are coming from my house plants, although they never get infested. For the aphids, I've been spraying with insecticidal soap and rinsing in the shower because I like to be able to pick and use any of the peppers that develop during the winter. Does anyone have a better recommendation for control?
