How to Get Rid of Greenfly?

Answer

The most convenient way to get rid of greenfly is by use of washing up liquid mixed with water. Alternatively, you could plant nasturtium if you happen to grow apples or broccoli since nasturtium keeps the aphids away. Another convenient and environment-friendly method is the planting of garlic in your garden.

One can use chemical sprays to get rid of greenflies though the chemicals tend to have some bad affect on other beneficial insects and wildlife. You can also opt to encourage other insects which feed on aphids such as hoverflies, ladybirds, lacewings and birds.
Greenfly and their kin have a number of natural enemies, including ladybirds, lacewing larvae, hoverflies and some wasps which you can buy and introduce to your garden. Alternatively, you could buy insecticides which are more efficient in controlling greenfly infestations, though this comes with some additional environmental-based restrictions.
Greenflies can be annoying at times so getting rid of them can sometimes be a main priority. Ladybugs naturally eat greenflies. You can also put dish soap and water in a spray bottle to get rid of them. You can find more information at www.tipstrs.com
