  1. I love your tip about the garlic! I have never heard of that before so I will be trying it! We have an aphids problem throughout our yard usually in late summer and they drive me crazy because they can be so destructive. I wonder if it works on other plants? Stopping by from Tuesdays with a Twist.

    • Hi Terri,Thanks for commenting! I sprayed roses (and other plants that seemed to attract aphids) every evening for a month. Whole rose bed smelled like a garlic for a while 😉 but aphids were mostly gone. I stopped my spraying routine and after 3 weeks they were back 🙁 It’s a great idea when you prefer eco friendly solutions,but not such a good one if you’re looking for something definite.
