Squish. Or direct hits of insecticidal soap.

Get yourself a cold one..be it beer, or iced tea and pick away...they are on the underside.

Gary, this is an organic, biological control for many insects, including fire ants, thrips, saw fly larvae and many others. Spray every two weeks. Little effect on beneficials, only a four hour re entry time and useful on all garden plants. It has no phyto toxic effects, either, so it won't burn your foliage or dry out your skin. Insecticidal soap is lard. Lard is an oil and oils CAN burn foliage. It also takes care of Asian Citrus Leaf Miner. Kim
