@tinaaune you're welcome 😊 but I don't think I gave you the aphids with it! 🤣😂🤣 They are seriously a pain in the butt! Easy to spray off with water, but an everyday chore 😭

Interesting. Absolutely nothing eats or lives on my many milkweed plants. No monarchs here. Bees and hornets love the flowers though

Interesting and safe approach to an insect problem. I do likewise partly because I’m lazy when it comes to battling infestations but usually a bird or another insect comes to my rescue. Only on rare occasion do I use insecticides but I’ll often wash off unwanted insects with water.
