Welcome to my website where I gather information about plant pests and pathogens preying on gardens in my local area in Melbourne. I want to live in harmoney with nature and so I use exclusion techniques and natural predators to protect my edible and ornamental plants instead of using poisonous chemicals...................John Ashworth 27th July 2015.
They are best removed early in the season before they get a foothold. Just
wash them off the plants foliage or flowers using a jet of water from a hose.
If they do get out of control, spray them with a 10% solution of organic full cream milk in rainwater. Take care to avoid collateral damage among the beneficial insect population by spraying early in the morning.
