Natural ways to control aphids

Get rid of aphids naturally with these 5 safe, gentle, non-toxic methods.

Aphids can be a dreadful garden pest – damaging your plants, reducing yields, and spreading disease throughout your garden. Aphids are small, soft-bodied insects that can come in many different shapes and colors, but all are quite destructive in the garden. They suck out the juices of your plants, leaving them deformed, weakened and more susceptible to disease, and reducing harvests – and there aren’t many plants they don’t like!

Fortunately for organic gardeners, they are also one of the easier pests to deal with – if you know what you’re doing. You can fight back and banish these pesky bugs from your garden using simple, organic, and effective methods.

The quick video below shares 5 natural tips for getting rid of aphids in your garden, without resorting to poisonous chemical sprays or other “conventional” methods that may pollute the soil and groundwater or harm other creatures or beneficial insects.

An avid gardener since childhood, I love sharing my passion for gardening with others! I have gardened in a number of different climates and settings, from large fenced garden plots, to tiny patio and container gardens, and I firmly believe that everyone can learn to grow at least some of their own food - no matter where you live. Growing your own food can help you take control of your own health and food supply, and there has never been a better time to get started!
