Just wondering if anyone else has noticed a proliferation of blackfly this year. I normally have very few problems, but this summer they're colonising things in vast numbers that they never normally touch. Maybe conditions have been just right for an epidemic?

Yes, worst I have seen in 20 years, just about every bean affected, even the marigolds do not put them off, even on the pumpkins.

Hi Pimento search this site and you will find numerous posts about this issue. Definitely severe this year I am afraid.
Choose your weapons I go for dilute washing up liquid coupled with "squishing!!"😱😱😱

Good luck
Keep digging
