Any comments on how to invite ladybugs in terrace?. I tried various flowering plants, but not much help. Do we get ladybuds for sale in India?

In my case I had mealy bug infestation and now they are mostly under control as mealy bug destroyers have started coming to the plants.

Hi,

It seems there are some problems with my tomato plants. (Pls see the link).  I coud not see any  leaf miner. Is it the blight disease?, What is the neem soap ratio to tackle this?

Dr. Hameed. 

As far as I can see, this is leaf miner only. The images are not on correct focus but I can see curly lines throughout the leaves. I'd these on my cherry tomatoes, I just removed the badly affected leaves - especially the bottom ones - and applied Neem oil emulsion. I also kept my plants at certain distance hoping it would save from easy spread. 

 

Hope my 2cents help.

Hi Navneeth

Thanks for the information. I have kept the  plants  far apart and pruned the bottom leaves. Waiting to see the results.

with regards
