How To Keep Aphids Off Tomato Plants – 4 Simple Secrets To Success!


When it comes to pests that destroy tomato plants, aphids are right up there at the top of the list. Even though aphids are very small, they make up for it by being able to reproduce and grow very quickly. 

Luckily, tomato plants can quickly get better if you do something. But, as with most plant problems and pests, it's best to find a problem as soon as possible.  



Early Detection Is Key

Early aphid infestations are easier to eradicate than those that have grown for days. Garden walks every few days are recommended.  

Aphids should be sprayed with a hose first! It is amazing how quickly this can control a mild to average aphid infestation. 



Spraying Off Aphids 

Aphids are so small that a strong water spray will dislodge them from plant tissue and drop them. They usually die before climbing the plant again.  

Aphids may not be eradicated by water if the infestation is severe. You can stay organic with neem oil. 



Using Neem Oil  

Neem tree seeds are pressed to make oil. Used properly, it is 100% organic and safe for pollinators and other beneficial insects. Concentrate solutions are available at garden centres and online.  

Aphids on tomato plants can be controlled naturally by attracting predatory insects to your garden. Indeed, this is the most natural and simple control method! 



Attract Predatory Insects 

Aphids are eaten by many insects throughout their lives. Ladybirds, lacewings, and parasitic wasps are great garden insects. Despite their inability to control large infestations, they are great at controlling smaller ones.
