Hi Srikant,

Not sure what it is but just want to know that did it rained last week or before this thing happenned ?

Last week had a similiar situation for my garden in Udupi where plants were under attack by T-Bugs after rain.

Not sure if it is "Sercospora leaf spot" as it was mentioned that after rain we can have this disease on the plant. Looks little-bit similiar though.

Check this page for your area and the kind of attack that could happen on your plants and some ways to prevent it.

Hi Deepak,

 

Thanks for the link. I never knew there is such a report!!!

 

The problem I have is not a disease or virus. It seems to be some kind of pest infestation. I can actually touch the black thing.

It did not rain here in Hyderabad in the last week.

 

Thanks,

Srikanth

Hello Srikanth

I think what you have are black aphids, look up internet for pictures. I have the same ones on my broad beans, green chilles. You will also see some ants around and shiny material on the leaves.

organic ways - storng water spray, neem oil spray, or lemon juice and dish soap spray. you just pick one and keep spraying everyday - there are many chemical controls but I am not aware of the names. Maybe some one else can answer.

Hi Srikanth,

They are aphids. They are transported by ants. First, fix the ant problem. Then you can use neem spray with soap. This has to be done for like 2- 3 times for it to be effective. If the infestation is not heavy, you can use rubbing alcohol with water and spray on the infected area.

You can also try commercial neem products that have higher ppm of azadirachtin ( main ingredient in neem).

 

Hope this helps.
