Housewives on a note – Iodine and milk will rid your roses of aphids

Aphids are probably the most disgusting and persistent pest that can settle in your garden. It seems that they have dealt with her, and there is beauty in the garden. But after a week, the aphids did not seem to disappear anywhere. All the same, it sits on the leaves of roses and shrubs, and spoils the appearance of plants.

We went in and the aphids were taken away. To combat it, you will need: a sprayer or a 2-liter bottle, a syringe, 100 ml of milk and a jar of iodine. Pour 1 liter of water into the sprayer.

Take half a jar of iodine in a syringe, pour it into 100 ml of milk and mix. The milk turns out to be a beautiful yellowish color. Pour the iodized milk into the sprayer, where you already have 1 liter of water. Shake and you can spray roses and plants affected by aphids.

This composition not only fights against aphids, but also prevents fungal diseases (phytophthora, powdery mildew). This recipe has been tested on my site for more than one year. With the same composition, I treat phytophthora on tomatoes, and my tomatoes are free of this scourge.
