Our poor plum trees! The aphids are really out-of-control this spring, sucking the life out of the plums' youngest, softest growth.
Although these two were hard at work, combating aphids (larval ladybugs are some of the best predators of aphids), we didn't think that they could fight the entire battle.
So, Robb and I sprayed the tree down with soapy water. A day later, most of the aphids were dead.
