    Toxic aphid treatment

    These aphids just seem like they aren't going anywhere. You can spray for them and i don't see them for a little while but they are never gone. I don't want to keep spraying forever. Pyrethrin definitely ain't doing it. I have some permethrin i was about to try but i can't really figure out application rate. Is there anything toxic that works? Like forbid or avid. Like a systemic insecticide. I have to get them off my mom's.
    I never really had a problem with aphids before. They were always easy to get rid of.

    That's not really helpful.
    I don't have Caterpillars botrytis mildew and humidity

    Has anyone used permethrin? I try googling application rates and all i find is for using it as a lice shampoo. Lol

      It's not obvious that he can select all the pictures with chimneys. Nicotine isn't systemic but is about as toxic as it gets. Won't fix an environment of bugs or incomplete spraying.

        They don't like DE, I've used sulfur and safers insecticidal soap spray too but I still see them from time to time.

        I'm hearing if you can get your Brix to 12 they can't feed.

        Pesticides won't eliminate them it seems... I remember the clone they came in on.

          I'm going to spray everything down with DE with the old dustin-miser.. But that is just gonna help kick them back.

          Brix to 12 huh? That's interesting. Gotta look into that.

          There has to be some crazy insecticide. I think they are all over my county though. Everyone and their mom had them this summer. I bet they are in the trees.

            Natural Solution

            Try some Captain Jack's Dead Bug. It wails on tough pests and is not harmful to people or pets. It's a bacteria they discovered in an abandoned Rum Distillery. That makes it cool. I've tried every organic pesticide, this works on mites, thrips, aphids, and whiteflies.

            Good Luck, and Happy Hunting!!

              I am a organic, natural alternative guy but, it has to work.
              I am buying live ladybugs from Armstrong Garden Center. It's a slower method but it works.

                Growsafe is a product that has had a few mentions lately. It is derived from natural oils so a contact spray that needs 100% coverage to be effective.

                I have not used it myself, but have used other natural oil contact sprays. I have to find the right dosage to fit different pets which is a toss up between eradicating the pest and backing off when you see damage to the leaves. So raising the dosage of such a product may give you the toxicity you require.

                Aphids should be fairly sensitive and not require a high dosage.

                      Are you outside or inside @ the OP? Are you speaking of aphids or root aphids?

                        A buddy of mine has been using Mammoth, the stuff made out of Thyme Oil. It wiped out his white flies, thrips, spider mites, and regular aphids. The root aphids were the only ones that weren't completely knocked out. Likely because they're below the surface of the soil and other hard to reach places. He just did a super-drenching to get rid of them once and for all, I'll let you know how that went.

                        I've read diatomaceous earth works for root aphids, if that's what you've got. Spinosad seems to be the chemical treatment to use. There's a bio-insecticide called BotaniGard, the active ingredient is the fungus Beauveria that infects insects including root aphids and wipes them out. I used Beauveria to get rid of bed bugs and it was 100% effective. They don't develop resistance against it because it's a living organism and not a poison. The biocontrols are awesome, no reason to use harsh chemicals ever again.

                          That sounds like what I'm looking for the most so far. Something systemic. Do you know an application rate? Its supposed to last 30 days. Do i just need 1 treatment? Do u know anyone first hand that has had success using it on these new crazy aphids?

                          I may try the ortho also.

                          It's not root aphids. I think they are cannabis aphids.
                          I'm in Greenhouses. The plants were inside at my neighbors house getting sprayed with pyrethrin. We all had them outside last year and we still haven't gotten rid of them.
                          When he gave them to me, they had a few spots. The plants are healthy. It's just a few spots. The pyrethrin almost gets rid of them. They look gone but they come back.

                            Well, that's good you don't have the devilish root aphids. Storm shadow is right. Kontos for the win...Hard to find tho. Had to get mine off of ebay a year or so ago. 1 ml a gallon, and it'll be all over...
