Get in there and look on every stem and leaf back and front, you'll find them. I think its 2tsp/gal with 4 drops of dish soap to emulsify (?) I have a pump sprayer I been blasting the crap out of my bug'd plant they do not go easy...

You inspired me to go drench my veg closet! The best thing I've found for gnats so far beyond the regular doses of neem is colorful sticky traps. Until I walk into them and they stick to my very sparsly haired head...eeew.

The problem i believe is the eggs stick around for a good long time and I have not been super extra diligent and that's what it takes to beat them. Another thing I heard works really well at least on spider mites so it should on aphids also is the hot shot bug strips...wicked chemical action but supposedly like nuclear bomb lethal.

The neem I have is already in the spray bottle.

So do I spray it directly on the plants????

Yes I spray directly on the plants. It stinks and is oily but it's better than massive aphid infestation. You can wash your plants after you chop them. Have you found any yet? Look on the back side of the leaves around where you see the white stuff on. It's been my experience that aphids spread quickly, you'll want to establish what whatever is leaving that white stuff is asap.

Don't spray with anything oil based and put them under lights. Spray at lights out. You can burn your plant otherwise.

Opps. Hate when that happens.

Quit touching your plants.

OK so what you have is LEAF HOPPERS.

What I wood do is cull everything and start over.

UNLESS you are positive they didn't bring in a virus.


Where are you located (dont have to give an address city or state will do).


These are not BS - I tried to fix was a fail.

I got rid of the leaf hoppers but they left behind a virus after 4 months of quarantine I culled.

They are common vector for several plant viruses and they migrate from equator north as the season progresses into fall.
