I was wondering if anyone else was having a problem with aphids this year? I don't know if I over fertilized causing luxurious growth or what. But those little devils were every where on a few plants. I sprayed first with neem oil which didn't do much. Then I used Insecticidal Soap. That seemed to help, but only last a couple of days. Any suggestions?

Yep. First they were on my tomatoes. Then then were on my corn. But different colors!

Diluted palmolive soap solution works for me. They do come back but it's not that hard to spray them again. Of course, my garden is small so it's managable.

I have heard that canola oil or superfine horticulture oil also work well.
