Does anyone know of a natural and organic way to get rid of aphids from a vegetable garden? Once they are there, they just keep multiplying so much that I have to disacrd the whole plant.

Thank you.

I'm happy to dance with you
I have 2 opinions
We had tried usual things to keep them away, including something like coyote urine, it is sold in hardware stores by us

Can you snip? Ladybugs eat aphids.

Hi Bobbie,

I really appreciate your link and suggestions. I did try the lady bug method. Unfortunatley, although some of them did eat, most left. I timed released them into 2 phases. By the time all of them left, there were still some aphids left and as you know, they multiply more until they are all gone.

So we decided to trash the whole plant before the rest of them gets infected. I think the next option I would like to try is a garlic and water spray and aluminum foil. They sound more natural to my veggie garden and would like to try should the aphids come back.

Aphids especially like tomatoes and squash, particularly juicy varieties. Some of them also have wings so that when they are attacked, that is when you try to wash them away, they can fly away to another plant. They secrete a chemical when threatened that causes the next generation of aphids to create a larger population with wings. When more of them have wings they can spread all around your garden more easily and are quite happy to attack your neighbor's plants, as well.
