My runner beans and broad beans are infested with black fly, squashing them has reduced the flowers, blasting them with water has probably knocked them onto other plants. Blasting the woolly aphid on the apple tree doesn't seem to work either or they are wearing strong waterproofs! Although I have bees, the other predators don't seem to be around. I have thought of spraying them but don't want to eat chemicals and after seeing the programme the other night about how coffee is decafinated, am seriously thinking about going back to drinking normal coffee.
