APHIDS HELP !!!!!

Post by RosyTeesh on 1st October 2012, 16:09

I have tried quite a few things to get rid of aphids with no luck. I have used white oil, eco oil, aphid spray, cayenne pepper, many rose sprays (organic and poison). The hose & even yates rose spray has done nothing. Stops them for a few days then they're back.

Currently some of my roses are really getting a battering with these nasty creatures. I am assuming that when I spray them that the sprays don't affect the eggs?

I have so many roses and it became such a problem with 'Hot Chocolate' that I had to cut half of it off. It was just that bad. They must really love the heat here.

I have sprayed them now with eco oil and cayenne pepper and discovered caterpillars !!!!! Eating whole buds !!!!! And then some mildew. Which I have never had before. I have organic product for the mildew. And I am confident that I have caught and cut in half the caterpillars that I could see just on one plant.

I am going mad. Please help before I rip them all out.

PS. In previous posts I see Neptune has mentioned lime sulfur in water? Has this worked for anyone else?

Oh dear Rosy , you poor thing , i think roses are like strawberries , every goddam bug loves em , have you tried pyrithrone sprays , check out all the growers sites and see what they recommend , they are bad this year , i've got em , i've been squashing them on a daily basis , last year the ladybird bugs came along and ate them all , but too cold for them at the moment ....

Hi Jordan, yes I have tried that. It was a little expensive to buy in cans for the amount of roses I have, so I tried 2 cans and it didn't work Sad

It seems that even if I spray them weekly they keep coming back after a few days. In full force. I have tried everything but those little pills from Bunnings. If we didn't have so many roses I would have bought them already.

Have you ever rid them completely? I have resorted to cutting some branches off. Which is not ideal in summer.

Some roses don't get them at all. About half of my older roses are affected and the other half are ok. I just feel like I'm constantly spraying them. And I like to use organic rose oil mostly but it's not keeping them at bay.

okay no probs , reason why i asked .. the people next door to me have about 6 bushes . and they are not looked after .. so many aphids on there and black spot and mildew .. they only thing i think they do is prune and water .. sometimes aphids can be carried by the wind from a close by place where plants and roses carry disease

The fences are double palings and 2 metres high, so I can only think that I bought in an infected bush and that infected the rest of them. I never had this problem last year. I think I know where I got it from too, will never buy there again!
