Don't like all those chemical dusting to put on flowers to keep the bugs away? Use plain flour instead. Just dust it on roses and etc., and it works well to rid plants of bugs. Flour makes it almost impossible for the insects to breath. Happy Gardening!

Nasturtium planted a few feet away from tomatoes or other plants will "Attract" the aphids away from them. Another "old farmer" trick to attact Bees for pollenation is to plant marigolds here and there.
Same question--would a fine dusting of flour help ANY flowering plant? Or vegetables?
Every year I have a major problem with aphids on my tomatoes. Do you think this would work for them?
Thanks a bunch for that tip! I sent it on to all of my friends and relatives. Thanks for sharing and God bless you.
