How do I kill off millions of Aphids?
Went outside this morning to check if there had been any damage done by our sudden snowfall last night...
Noticed that the trees on one side of the house were all "sticky looking" as if someone had dumped sugar water on them.
I just did an extensive search of the trees and noticed that there are literally millions of little green (aphids?)
clinging to the leaves, branches, etc!
I have many raspberry, currant, blueberry, plants etc and am terrified that these nasty things are going to eat them all. What can I do to kill them?
I know that dish soap bubbles are supposed to "drown" them, but that is not feasible, there are way too many trees etc.
I have a 2 year old, so I really don't want to use nasty chemicals.
I had these nasty things kill off my dill and currants last year...don't want to lose them all again.
And where do they all come from?
I have NEVER in my life seen this many before!
I grabbed a few branches off of one tree, dropped them on the ground, and squished them to death...but I can't do this to all of them...
