  • Box elder bugs & aphids on pond plants

    Created by Debra Dezellem on

    My studies show the Praying Mantis will eat Box Elder Bugs, please confirm or suggest a better predator.

    Last season I bought some pond plants which brought an infestation of Black Aquatic Aphids. Will the cold weather eradicate them or will they survive the winter? If they return is there a natural predator or another way to get rid of them? Last season they nearly killed my lilies.

    Thank you for your time. DD
