Keep the plants submerged completely in water for a couple hours...


I did this a couple times a week for about a month. I also sprayed them in the kitchen sink every time. That and the constant smashing them when I saw them, seems to have worked for me. I hope your luck turns around. Believe me, I know how maddening it can be to deal with aphids. I don't know if anyone suggested it yet but you can also try diatomaceous earth as well and see if that has any effect on them.

%uckers are back  :evil:
 
Dont know how, gave them another spray.
 
Should actually dip the whole thing into a Neem solution. I started spraying the soils too when I planted the other stuff.

Do you have your plants where you can close them off from the rest of your house? If so you may be able to try this stuff that they are using in the U.K.. I think I remember Heefy (he is a member on THP)from there using it or something similar in his poly tunnel when he had bad bug problems. I somewhat remember him saying it did not harm the plants.

Man, this has to be frustrating beyond belief.  At least you'll be able to neem them quick this time before their numbers multiply.

 

And +1 on spraying the bulk of them off the plants first in the shower or sink. Also, though you're probably doing it already, spraying up from underneath the leaves and especially a good volume of spray directly down into the new growth areas where the new little leaves are all bunched together.  They seem to love to wedge themselves down in there and, I assume, feed off the tender newly developing leaves.

Yup under and over. I have them in the kitchen, the rest of my stuff I started is in the basement. I sprayed the ones in the basement too this morning just in case. I assume my top floor contaminated. Neem works so will stick with that.

Took four days to kill them last time, think will double the dosage to 1tbsp/L next.

Should put a camera to it and watch it all the time lol.

Good luck man! I'm back in the same boat. I left town for two weeks and came back to all of my plants coated in aphids. I thought I had them beat two months ago but I guess I was wrong.
