Hi! Thanks everyone - I've loved all the responses.I definately want to keep things as natural & organic as possible, I was just shocked at how many of these nasty little things there are!
I will try to be patient and hopefully the natural predators will take control, although I havent seen any lady bugs yet : (
You can't buy them can you?
I also like waterbutts idea of squishing them to relieve stress!
It's interesting that addict mentioned the ants because many of these plants that are heavily covered do have ants scurrying up and down them & I didn't think anything of it. I'll try the cinnamon idea today as that can't do any harm to the soil...(can it?!)
