Birch trees and aphids [Jun. 15th, 2005|08:27 am]
Your slice of Eden

I'm hoping someone here might have an answer for me and the favorite element in my saucy garden, my weeping birch tree.

It is COVERED in aphids. Can they hurt/kill the tree? How do I get rid of them in a safe manner? It's a super tall tree in a tiny back yard and my dogs are out there often.

Please and thank you!

I have heard that a mix of gentle dish soap (like Ivory or Dawn) and water can be safely sprayed on plants to get rid of insects. I used it years ago but honestly I can't remember my results :/ Good luck!
