how to get rid of

You will never completely eradicate this pest- as you have found out they hide in the soil where they over-winter- as well as on the plants-you can control them to a certain extent by picking of my hand or using Provado Ultimate Bug Killer

This is interesting from the RHS-tells you all you need to know

As this is the latest thread on compost-

just seen an advert that Wickes have reduced their 70L bags by half to £1.99-if it can be stored in a dry place it should be ok for next year-that is what they are likely to do- and charge full price next spring in any case.

So it is a judgement call
