Basic steps to ensure a successful Aphid Control Service.

It is said that for every plant there is an aphid. Aphids are also known as plant lice. These tiny little sap suckers drink the nutrient-rich liquid in plants and in return leave the plant weak and looking shriveled, with curled leaves and deformed flowers and fruit. It is important to control populations as they migrate from neighboring properties. Aphids are also the prime food for other insects such as ants and spiders. So, where aphids are ants will be practicing their farming skills to keep them producing honeydew, which of course is a favorite food for ants. And spiders find aphids tasty when they find them in their webs. To keep aphids under control after an Aphid Control Service, follow the simple steps below.

  • Keep the plantings in your landscape healthy and free of insects. Give them a good shower every now and then. It will knock off a lot of aphids and they won’t be able to crawl back up onto the plants. Plant insects (aphids, whitefly etc.) impact the health of your plantings and are food sources for other insects such as, ants and spiders.
  • Keep plants pruned and thinned out. Let the sun in. Aphids shy away from the bright light and heat of the sun. They congregate most often on the shaded and protected stalks of plants and on the underside of the leaves.
  • Inspect your plants often. Catching a problem in the making is easier than trying to eliminate one that has gotten out of hand.
  • House plants can have aphids also. Take time to wipe off their leaves and remove any unwanted pests.
