Spray with the water hose, very easy to knock off that way.

I have mainly used rogor in the past but have two bottles of the Yates rose product, Rose Shield, I shall be using that till it runs out which at the rate I spray will be quite a few years, I rarely spray unless I am desperate and the infestation is beyond my organic ways Embarassed

I only use rogor if the lady birds or the little silver eye birds can't keep up, when I do its a concentration of 1/2 ml / lt. Aphids are pretty easy to knock off, it things like spider mite which is the real problem.

Thankfully my predator population seems to be bigger than the aphid population at the moment. Very Happy Not sure if the ladybirds and the wrens have a standing agreement or all out competition. Bad
Either way - it's FINE BY ME !!!

TE azaleas are attacked by Lace wing which looks similar to RSM, you have to spray over a 2 wk cycle which will clean them up, but they will always come back so you have to keep an eye out

Half your luck.

We usually have a reasonable amount of rain by this time of year but so far we have had very little since July. We had a bit of a shower this morning but only a couple of mm at most. What makes it worse is that I could see and hear the rain pouring on the other side of the valley (less than 1km away) and yet we missed most of it.

I have been watching it going around us, Nambour, for the last few weeks, it is almost heartbreaking! Hope by the time I get back from my holiday some decent rain has decided to fall here on the Sunny Coast!

Yesterday morning I had a look at the long range weather for the next couple of weeks. The cyclone near New Caledonia was predicted to turn back towards us and cross the coast just north of here and deliver a lot of rain.

By last night the prediction had changed and the rain has headed for Tahiti.

"We'll all be rooned," said Hanrahan, In accents most forlorn, Outside the church, ere Mass began, One frosty Sunday morn.

The congregation stood about, Coat-collars to the ears, And talked of stock, and crops, and drought, As it had done for years.

"It's lookin' crook," said Daniel Croke; "Bedad, it's cruke, me lad, For never since the banks went broke Has seasons been so bad."

"It's dry, all right," said young O'Neil, With which astute remark He squatted down upon his heel And chewed a piece of bark.

And so around the chorus ran "It's keepin' dry, no doubt." "We'll all be rooned," said Hanrahan, "Before the year is out.

LOL Gary!

Apart from two days of wet , it's been and is again dry as dust around here. Lots of BoM forecasts about possible this and possible that, but those little rain cloud icons on the Bureau's maps are just rain porn. We are rooned.
