I've been battling aphids for awhile now. What can I do?

So frustrating!

Battling Bugs can be such a challenge – that’s why I made a video on the subject! I’ve read about using ladybugs to help control them. But, they fly away. And, chemicals are tempting. However, I try to play nice in the garden and avoid harming beneficial insects. So, I go with soap and water when fighting aphids. And, coat the leaves. Since aphids like newer foliage, be careful not to overfertilize with nitrogen. These strategies, combined with warmer temperatures as summer comes on, seem to help control aphids in my garden.

Thanks for writing!
