The neem I have is already in the spray bottle.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...
So do I spray it directly on the plants????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.
Yes,, it looks like dandruff.. I shook the leave and a few flew away..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.
Opps. Hate when that happens.Mayday Mayday... I have this stuff that looks like dandruff on the leaves.. I touch the leaves and the dandruff fly away.. bugssssssss...
Holy shit. I live in the St. Louis MO area. I have 18 plants. I do not want to kill them. ArghOpps. 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.
