The Q&A Archives: Aphids in my eggplant wont go away

Question: I can't seem to get rid of the aphids on my eggplant plant? I have sprayed it over and over with the stuff I have sprayed with success on my roses and other vegetation, but for some reason they won't go away on this one plant. Do you have any suggestions?

Answer: Aphids can be a real problem in the garden but if you are diligent, you can control these pests. Use insecticidal soap and spray all parts of the plant; the next day go out and inspect the plants. If you see live aphids, spray thoroughly again. You may have to treat every 2-3 days for a week in order to get rid of all the pesky aphids. Then, once you have control of the situation, check your plants every day and spray at the first sign of new aphids.

Good luck with your garden!
