How do I control blackfly on plants?
Blackfly are a common problem, particularly during autumn, spring and summer. They can take over a whole plant in a matter of days if conditions are right. There are ways of avoiding plagues of these sap sucking insects, always avoid applying large volumes of nitrogen rich fertilisers. Plants that have been fed a lot of nitrogen secrete sugars that attract sucking insects. If you have an infestation there are organic and inorganic ways of treating them with simple spray on pesticides. Pop in store and a member of staff will tell you more about the products we have on offer.
