Then, how do I get rid of aphids?
Make a homemade insecticidal soap, a low-toxicity bug control solution that will desiccate the soft bodies and kill the aphids without doing harm to your plants. Simply mix a few teaspoons of liquid dish soap with one quart of water, then spray or wipe the solution onto the leaves, stems, and buds of the plant.
Also, can I use vinegar to kill aphids? Get out a spray bottle and fill it 1/3 of the way with distilled white vinegar and the rest of the way with water. This will kill the aphids and larvae on contact. Place a square of aluminum foil around the base of plants affected by aphids. It is also good for the plants, as it brings them more natural sunlight.
Keeping this in consideration, how do you kill aphids on mint?
Direct a spray of water at the infested mint foliage. The force of the water dislodges the aphids from the mints and washes them away. Spray removal controls minor aphid infestations. Treat the mint with an insecticidal soap for more severe infestations.
How do I keep aphids off my herbs?
Aphids are best controlled using a combination of good cultural care practices and, if necessary, a horticultural oil or insecticidal soap.
- Remove nearby sources of aphid populations like weeds, ideally before planting herbs.
- Cultivate certain herbs that help repel aphids.
