Bug identification and help please
« on: March 29, 2021, 09:40 »
Hello, Iíve noticed these tiny bugs on my Bougainville plant and canít really tell what they are. Could anyone assist and advise on how to deal with them please. Iíve already sprayed them with a bug and fungus spray a few times but with no effect so far. Thanks

Good morning Brad26, 
it looks like a gathering of the ever present whitefly,  there is a rumour that spraying with the water the spuds have been boiled in seems to deter them.

Cheers,  Tony.

There's greenfly on the nearest shoot, the white bits are the casings, which are shed between growth stages. I'd spray with water with a little washing up liquid in it.

Thanks for the advice everyone. I my daughter to sponge them all of each leaf and stem with some soapy water. Hopefully that will put an end to it.
