Aphids
« on: October 16, 2018, 17:57 »
although I netted my raised bed when I planted my brussels sprouts when I walked past the bed the other day it was like snow coming of the crop aphids rampant obviously the netting wasn't fine enough should have used environment netting  :ohmy:

 last year I sprayed the brussels with a mixture of washing up liquid and cooking oil never had an aphid problem and used the same netting maybe I planted the crop to close this year and I never sprayed because of unforeseen problems

how come you never see any aphids in field crops all grown and  picked to supermarket spec in a 40 acre field when my raised bed is only 8/10  :( aphids having a ball  :nowink:

I suspect that what else you never see are the gallons of chemicals sprayed  onto field crops. 
Sets a low standard and fails to achieve it.
