Can anyone tell me what these uglies are and how to get rid of them without chemicals? These are 4 yellow milkweeds that are new cuttings and are now under attack!
Thanks in advance,
Annie & Mike
SOLVED: HELP! Ugly bugs on my poor little milkweed!
Yellow peach aphids, yuck!!! Just squish as many as you can and rinse what's left off with soapy water. This is a good larval food for the Monarch Butterfly, so check for baby monarchs first. I kept meaning to spray mine, kept forgetting. I went out one day and the baby ladybugs(they look like little dragons) were eating them(aphids) all up!!
Thanks for posting this - they're all over my milkweed, too and I've been wondering what to do about them!
