Aphids everywhere, has help arrived?
I have a very bad aphid problem starting on my rockmelon. Right now it is contained to the melons but I can see it it starting to spread to other plants. I am particularly worried about my nearby pumpkin which is going strong but they will change all that. The question is should I turf a rockmelon this bad? I can see a grub there which might be a natural predator, if I wait long enough will these eventually control the problem for me? I also see small long black flies on the leaves where the aphids are too. Are these also an aphid predator (lacewings maybe?) Should I leave these be and see what they can accomplish?
