Problem with Aphids

Question from a fellow grower:

ive been battling aphids since sept. I thought I saved 1 plant. it was
roughly 8 in tall. (this is inside)I resorted to cutting off all large
foiliage. and using seven.two seven day treatments. this was in
nov.didnt see anything through my loupe for today I noticed
color changing in leaves. I just started flowering stage four days
ago…and guess what their back ! I looked at the picturesin yur guide,
they are for sure aphids please help!!!

they are so small and are attacking the tops and new vegetation,
they also are laying eggs in the crotch area of the leaf where the
leaves come off the considering a ornamental spray

Spray off the undersides of leaves the best you can. Plain water will knock them down.

I used Monterey Bugbuster II for the first time and was impressed but now that I’m in flowering, I won’t use it. I use Pure Crop 1 normally.

Also need to look for ants and try to find their home. Ants will ‘farm’ aphids and bring them to the leaves. They then feast on the sticky gooey mess that aphids make as they eat. Ants will also kill the aphids if they are not producing (ie getting too old)… they will also eat the wings off of them so they cannot fly away. I know, it’s weird.
