I almost missed a huge infestation of black aphids on my runner beans. They were low down on the plants and I was too busy tending to the shoots and eyeing up the bean growth. Mental note to check the whole plant!
I washed and squashed what I could and I’ve made a trap from the cover of the yellow pages and some clean plastic takeaway tubs. If it works I’ll post pictures else I’ll be crying about my losses.
Wish me luck.
