|Grrrr! I have been fighting aphids for the past three months, well ... I cannot tell a lie, I haven't been fighting hard enough it seems .. maybe I was just hoping a strong spray from the hose every now and again would chase them away. WRONG! These little buggers are attacking my plants! A few weeks ago I found aphids on a couple of plants on the pool deck, one was a little H. crassipes I rec'd in trade a couple of years ago and the other plant wasn't a hoya, but I can't remember which plant it was. I thought I killed all of the aphids, but they must have traveled! Today I was looking around and decided to bring H. obovata out from it's corner on the deck and give it a good spray with the hose. Upon looking closely I found bunches of these ugly yellow aphids all over the plant! Tomorrow I am bringing out the big guns (BATS) and dealing with these ugly bugs for good!
This is my H. obovata
