Yellow Aphids on Mandevilla Plant
Yellow aphids infesting a Mandevilla plant. We were able to rid the aphids using a soap / water solution.
Adding 1 to 2 tablespoons of dishsoap to a squirt bottle of water (mixing well) and spraying it on the aphids cause them to dry up and die the next day without harming the plant.
The aphids did return over time, but simply reapply the water / soap mix and it took care of them pretty quick.
