The Q&A Archives: aphids

Question: Is it possible to get aphids from a previously owned plant stand? Even after cleaning it?

Answer: It is highly improbable that aphids would survive on a plant stand after it has been cleaned. These soft bodied insects can fly and once the plants are gone, they will leave the area. Scale insects are a different story - they can hide in the crevices between the parts, but aphids most likely would leave or be killed by soapy water.
