Hey all, are these aphids on my Pomegranate? What’s the recommended non-toxic insecticide for them? Yay bugs! Thanks!
Washing them off with a hard water spray a few times my solve the problem.
Neem Oil works wonders, 10-15ml with 5ml dish soap and fill the rest with water up to 32 ounces (960ml). Spray the foliage every 5-7 days and perform for 2-3 weeks, them monthly for prevention of infestations. It also acts as a fungicide so that’s a bonus!
Extremely hard to tell -
but you may have a clutch of recently hatched lady bugs (grey) munching thru a colony of aphids (light green).
Yup, @cab_lad_70 , looks like black lady bug larvae eating the green aphids. Oh, the humanity!
Good reason to wash them off first. The lady bug larvae will most likely survive to find new juice suckers to eat.
After a few days of heavy daily washing, it looks like both populations are gone! And thank you lady bugs!
