Aphid Control on Roses

For aphid control on roses, here is what we use:

Supplies:

  • 1 quart water
  • 1 Tbsp. dish detergent
  • 1 tsp. cooking oil (makes the solution stick to the roses)
  • 1 cup distilled vinegar

Directions:

Put it all in a spray bottle, mix it up (foaminess is good), spray every day 'til the aphids kick the bucket!

Also, I use the high-powered spray from the hose to knock them off if the roses are still in bud stage.

Or, as a last resort, I put on my garden gloves, crush the little buggers with my fingers (yuk!), then top the roses off with the homemade spray.

I am surprised about using distilled vinegar as this is probably one of the best weed /plant killers you can use.

Yes it will harm the plant. Vinegar, soap, and canola will kill weeds and grass

I have an Autumn Sage very close!!! And I do a bird/butterfly garden too ( when I purchase plants) so will this bother or hurt my hummingbirds because I'm already seeing them on my Sage????
