Why are aphids eating my roots

Discussion in 'Sick Plants and Problems' started by chaoticbliss36, Dec 14, 2007.

  1. these pests have all the characteristics of aphids except that they are only in my soil less medium. can i use neem in the coco mix, and if so how do i apply it. or is there another alternative? i also have winged aphid flying around...at one point i could kill them all by hand but way more were layin below the surface.
  2. sounds like you may have fungus gnats, no matter what the buggers are Neem oil can deal with it

    mix a tblspoon neem oil in a gallon of water and water the plants, to kill the larve

    yellow sticky traps placed on the soil are great for returning adults
  3. ^^^I totally agree with you, man!

    Neem's the second-most amazing plant on the planet, after Cannabis.
  4. well do the nats look identical to aphids ? or are they the only aphid like creatures that would be in my medium? and can neem oil go bad? i've got some dyna gro neem thats looks awfully old, it's solid but i have it in some hot water. is it still ok to use?
