Ant eggs and bugs

Posted: 27/07/2014 at 22:24

I squidge the blackfly. You can spray them with detergent, it doesn't take a lot.

If you can reach the plant with a hose a good squirt will dislodge them, I hold the head (plant not aphid) while I squirt then it doesn't move out of the way

Stumped by another small flower!

Ant eggs and bugs

Ant eggs are white. Are you sure the black things aren't blackfly? they don't move around much. Ants are more likely to be after those than troubling plants. 

Can you put the pictures on here? Start from the tree in the tool bar, you need a PC or a laptop, not a phone
