Thanks for all the good advise. We have a small home operarion in South Central Virginia. Had some overwintered plants that we brought in to our seeding area. Those at least is where we are trying to put the source of our aphid infestation from. We tried the neem and insecticidal organic soap to control. Neither seemed to keep ahead of the aphids. And would take and burn our tender shoots also. We are planning in segregation of plants next season, using Diatomaceous earth, (possibly if can keep mess down in house). The chewing tobacco tea sounded promising. And the castile soap at 1 tsp, several (?) drops of tea tree oil, in (assume 1 gallon of water).
The coffee ground control sounds like a great standard also. Hope to continue to add and build to our stewardship efforts.
