Do you use trap crops?
I am a casual gardener and don’t plan to trap crop seriously, but I will leave some aphid infested plants alone if they seem happy to stay there!
Our kale is done but the aphids love it so much I am leaving them alone.
The ladybugs don’t mind, along with the lacewings and other aphid hunters! I want to make them feel happy here in my yard.
I got these ladybug shots the other day…
At the end, she just rested there, cleaning herself. What a banquet!
Peace, love, and ladybugs!
