We currently have been under attack by a certain insect that enjoys to feed off of the leaves of our plants. This insect comes in many colors including green, black and white and is often referred to as “Plant Lice”. This insect is known as the Aphid.

Aphids have been a common pest of gardens for many years. They latch onto your plants suck them of their nutrients which is definatly not good for any garden. To fight off these little pests we have made a concoction of organic soap, water and pepper to detour the Aphids from our plants without harming the plants in the process. We also must comb through the plants to squish them one by one which is a very tedious job. Though tough, it seems to be making a diffrence which is what really matters.
