What are Aphids?
Aphids are small sap-sucking insects and members of the superfamily Aphidoidea that feed on green leafy plants. An aphid colony can destroy a garden, and unfortunately, they tend to attract colonies of ants.
Most aphids that cause problems early in the season will hatch from eggs in spring. Initially they stay on the plants where they hatched, but later in spring and summer you may see them moving to other plants.
That means in early spring, before bud break (usually in April/early May), is a great time to treat plants with our soil injection method containing a systemic insecticide. This application will provide season-long control of aphids and other insects that can damage your plants.
If you had problems with aphids last year, call us or contact us to get on the treatment schedule before overwintering aphids hatch.
