    Hi all starting to notice the aphid invasion starting so want to get on it straight away especially with 2 large greenhouses what’s the best spray etc to use? I have had little to no joy in the past with Neem oil seems to just clog my pressure sprayer.

    Hi @Eddie ,

    Ladybirds are a natural predator so move any you find into your greenhouse. You can also buy predatory ladybirds online to deal with aphids. I use Neem oil with great success. Here’s my tips:

    – mix neem oil with castille soap to help it stay suspended in the water

    – Warm the mix slightly and it will un-clog the sprayer.

    Hopefully that helps?
