put the hose on them and blow them off...confidor also works...and there is many other chemicals you can find in Bunnings that will work also..............aphids if there is plenty around like them also...

You are going to kill the good bugs as well, Ladybirds and Preditor wasps. Was them off with the hose and forget the pestercides.

Hi,
I don't use any sprays. If you leave them alone, the insect predator numbers will build up. We have the parasitic wasp doing a good job here now.
