Post  SARockhill on 8/14/2012, 1:32 am

But I believe the DAWN is to much cause I burn my leaves on many of my Pepper plants I have pictures but not on this computer will try to move some over and show... still not sure about some of what I was wiping off besides the aphids I now believe there were Ladybuy eggs and maybe wasp but I havent seen any near the plants There is a hard shell something Pearl looking but I need better glasses to figure it out they were on everyone of the Ant farms running the aphids... at least now the flowers are blooming and some have peppers now also...Weeeee Very Happy

I hope I moved this to a better sub forum, but what I want to ask is did you use 1 tsp of the dish soap to 1 quart of water?

Sorry I don't remember :scratch: the amounts anymore I believe I took the FDA recommended aphid solution but I know I added to it the next day when I saw there were still a lot of them on the leafs I had sprayed Sad All really remember is my hands and forearms were covered while I tediously washed each and ever leaf & blooms covered and closed shut by them pale I was very tired but proud that I finished each bucket plant But like I said the next day seeing most of the leafs now had like burnt black all over them.

This discoloration looks like bruising of the plant. The insecticidal soap spray is simply meant to be sprayed onto the offending insects.

Have your plants now recovered?
