Aphids – On Pansies

Q: My container pansies are being attacked by these bugs. They hold on for dear life through bug sprays, water, and January wind. I have tried using Schultz’ Household and Garden Insect Spray and they just keep coming back. They are slowly destroying all my container gardens! What can I do?

A: You’ve given me very nice pictures of aphids on pansies…..although I can not imagine how they survive the cold weather! Is the container near the house where they never get cold?

The adults should all be dead after temperatures in the 20’s. Be sure the container is placed where it get’s really frigid.

Otherwise, keep after them with the Schultz product or insecticidal soap..
