I was inspecting one of my planters with a few Nero Tondo radishes (the black spanish kind, big bulbs and taller foliage but not as tall as daikon) which were looking particularly wimpier than usual and discovered clumps of aphids underneath some of the leaves. Not a huge infestation, but something to be concerned about. I squashed all the bugs I could find, but don't feel totally secure about it.
Any good natural pest deterrants for aphids? I know that garlic, pepper, and onions can be combined to make a potent pest deterrant, I know that Neem oil is really good, and one time I heard that aloe vera juices can be used for similar purposes if you water it down. Aloe would be the most convienient choice for me because I have about 50000 plants growing in my yard that seem to duplicate by the millions every year. I just don't know though, the internet doesn't seem to always yield consistent advice. Hope somebody out there can conjure up the catalyst to a solution.
