When they say big things come in small packages, they could very well be referring to the destruction that aphids can cause. Aphids are tiny insects that are frequently found in virtually any and every garden. While they might not seem like much, they can quickly reproduce and multiply into an army that can literally suck your plants dry. Aphids feed on the sweet, nutrient-rich liquids that run through plant veins, eventually causing them to wither and die. And the problem doesn’t go away on its own—Aphids can multiply into several generations over the course of one growing season, resulting in catastrophic destruction on your garden.

Identifying an Aphid Problem
Aphids can be one of the most difficult pest problems to deal with purely because they are so small and difficult to spot. Aphids tend to live the majority of their lives on the undersides of leaves, as leaves provide them with food and protection from the sun. When an adult aphid will generally grow no larger than about one-quarter of an inch in length and often coming in a variety of colors that can be difficult for the untrained eye to spot, it’s easy to see how these pests can be overlooked. Therefore, the best way to tell if you have an aphid problem is to look for signs of aphid damage.
You might have an aphid infestation if you spot any of the following in your outdoor garden:
- Misshapen, curling, stunted, or yellowing leaves on various plants
- Leaves with a strongly-visible vein system running throughout
- Sticky leaves or stems
- Mold growth on branches and leaves
- Deformed flowers or fruits
- A sudden increase in other prey insects like ladybugs
When aphids invade a garden, they typically leave a sticky substance behind known as “honeydew.” If your herbs or flowers feel obnoxiously sticky, then aphids may be the cause to blame. However, controlling aphids doesn’t have to be difficult. In fact, if you are able to address the problem before it gets out of hand, some simple solutions might rectify the issue before it can ever reach its full potential. For example, many nurseries sell beneficial insects like ladybugs that you can deploy into your garden. Ladybugs prey on aphids, helping control their numbers without damage to your plants.
If your problem has reached serious levels, however, Ridd Pest Control can help. We utilize eco-friendly treatment products that target aphids directly in order to eliminate them quickly. By customizing our treatment plans, we create superior results and long-lasting, aphid-free gardens.
