We have aphids on some of our plants. I have heard that dish soap in water will control them. Does anyone know the amount of dish soap to use?
two tbls dishsoap (Dawn or good quality)
one tbl white vinegar
one tbl vegetable oil
one tbl baking soda
Mix into one gallon water...then put in spray bottle.
This is really great for roses...apply every seven days. (05/02/2005)
They seem to be early here this year. I took some my foaming soft soap dispenser out and squirted them and let the foam sit. It seemed to do the trick. This wouldn't be practical for anything but a small infestation.

Put enough Palmolive Green Liquid Soap in some tepid water to get good bubbles. Then pour it on the plant and be sure to pour bubbles and all on the dirt the plant is in. You want it sudsy enough to wash a butter-coated pan. (05/03/2005)
