Aphids on Hibiscus
January 2, 2014 - 11:20 am

Hello All,

I have started to put new plants on my roof top.  I stay in Chennai.  I see that on my hibiscus plants, there are some small insects that are in white color.  They have sticky substance.  After reading few blogs, I understand they might be Aphids.  .  I tried by spraying turmeric powder, and also used the powder given in the nursery when asked for.  I also used Red chilli powder (read somewhere).  Still aphids are there. Can someone please help me how to get rid off those insects


Thanks A lot.
