  • Root Aphid Problems

    Created by Corbin Roskam on

    First off, you guys seem awesome judging by your website layout and content.

    I am looking to buy some beneficial insects at a good price with good service.

    I have an indoor root aphid problem here in Washington state and was wondering if you could sell me a few bugs that will help.

    Hypoaspis miles and rove beetles might be a good combo. What do you think?

    Kind Regards,

    Corbin –

    Beneficial nematodes would be your best bet for attacking root aphids with a biological control. Azamax or Azatrol — derived from neem oil — will also work to provide least-toxic control of this pest. If pest populations are high, we suggest using a pyrethrin drench for immediate control. Links are provided below:

    AzaMax (Azadirachtin)

    Azatrol EC

    Hope this helps!
