  1. Hi, I guess I checked this video so late.. very nice video thanks a lot for it..
    I am going for the straight fight.. my kale is getting infested with white bugs and I spraying water everyday is taking too much time for me.. So I'm thinking about to buy the "Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap Organic Peppermint Oil Pure Castile Soap Liquid"… Do you think this is going to work?

  2. can u please reply back please. i'm having trouble with these little red balls that look like slugs and they hangout on the stem i'm hoping there not some egg or shell. or even spiders. can u help me take them off and identify them . please reply to me ur the best thanks.

  3. John, Thanks for all of your videos. As for aphids, I tried knocking them off using water in my lettuce Aquaponic greenhouse. While I knocked thousands of them off, there were always enough left over that it didn't really work. The water on lettuce would knock them down in between the leaves, and they would then walk back up the plants.
    Please check out this Kickstarter project for new garden sprays made entirely from Edible Food Ingredients like Olive oil, spices and essential oils.

    Perhaps you will make a video about these products some day? They work on lettuce and kale because they work, and, they taste good. So here is one heavy hitter spray that doesn't have soap or other bad tasting things that block their use on real food.


  4. On a couple of my plants i have a million tiny ants, someone said aphids are on the plants and the ants are there to get them, they said spay them with some garlic and water does anyone know if this is correct

  5. Thank you for this great video, I have a question for which I have not been able to find and aswer to: after cleaning the aphids from the kale leaves is is safe consume the kale after washing them well???? i've been juicing the leaves after a good wash as they look pretty juicy and healthy except for the white powdery stuff on the back of leaf which washes off quickly.  Hope you can answer and thanks in advance

  6. how do you control snails and slugs organically???
    slugs and snails carry deadly parasites like liver fluke and lung worm…. these parasites can kill humans
    how does an organic gardener eat raw food with the clear mind of being safe from deadly parasites???
    yeah this one is tough cause its a matter of life and death rather than personal belief
    controlling slugs and snails and remaining safe from deadly parasites is one little problem that only has a toxic chemical answer

  7. Folks, you do not need to spend $$$$ on a fancy "bug blaster". Chances are very good that you already have a water nozzle that has a "jet" setting, which works well.

  8. Diatomaceous earth works good but ONLY until it gets wet. Once wet or moist it loses all it's effectiveness. I do not recommend Diatomaceous earth at all for large aphid infestations; you're far better off to spray.

  9. Blasting bugs off plants works well if it is a small garden, but very time consuming if it's in a large greenhouse. Neem oil mixed with peppermint Soap (Bronners) is what I use in a backpack sprayer. Make sure you flip the tip over on a sprayer to get the undersides of plants like green curly kale, squashes, chard, zucchini. Yes, you can spend lots of time smushing the aphids if they are only a few, but for a large infestation, you're better off spraying the undersides of the plants. NOTHING in this world is more disheartening to a gardener than to spot aphids in their garden!

    Also, bear in mind that aphids LOVE WATER and humid conditions so look around your garden or greenhouse to see if there are water sources than can be reduced,
    minimized or eliminated.

    Ladybugs works great for aphids but they don't stick around a garden or greenhouse long so plan on creating an environment that will promote their longevity, ie..ladybug houses.

    Do you have lots of ants in your garden or greenhouse? Chances are good the ants are moving the aphids around as they "farm" the aphids for their sweet milk much like we do for cows.

  10. John first time writer to you.I just wanted to let you know that i have learned  from you, and like learning all you teach and educate to your viewers,plus the travels you make to bring us more new information. Any way, thank you. Sincerely Rick from Washington State.

  11. My garden is just getting started here in SW  Colorado. Last year I grew my first kale and towards the end of the season the aphids were horrible. Luckly they did not spread to my roses. I could really use a bug blaster.

  12. WATER is the easiest way to get rid of aphids. I have the occupational aphid infestation and when I spot them I just set my garden hose pistol to jet and blast away.Aphids are soft shell bugs and will die from the impact.

  13. haha lmao when u went crazy with the bug blaster. and you forgot to mention companion planting! marigolds in my yard drop seed every year where me and my dad plant tomatoes! keeping away those nematodes!

  14. Ive been gardening 30 years+ here in Wisconsin and have never once had a bug problem. Guess im lucky. But I also use plants that naturaly deter alot of types of bugs. Sunflowers,Marigolds,etc around my gardens and ive never once checked my soil ph in these 30+ years 😉 My gardens always seem to just work the way I do them. Most times all I use is miricle grow and manure and sphagnum turned into soil and thats it. No I dont care about miracle grows ingredients. No matter how hard you try to GROW ORGANIC your still going to get cancers etc from  somewhere,our government will see to that! 😉

  15. I notice some comments about the 'too much nitrogen' thing. Aphids will attack plants regardless of much nitrogen is in the soil. If there was too much nitrogen, the plants would be showing signs of nitrogen toxicity. Looking at John's plants, I don't see that his plants are suffering, and the colour of the foliage is consistent with what they should have. 

  16. Blasting them off with water does seem good on paper, but what's stopping them from crawling back onto your plants? I say spray them once, and be done with them using an organic insecticidal soap.

  17. I suggest growing plants that are more prone to attract pest than your vegetables. For example I have river birch trees. They tend to get pesty here. It gets covered in lady bugs and other pest eating insects that will at some point move into the vegetable garden. I also use flowers to attract beneficial insects. When I get aphids I just leave them alone because I know the soldiers will be right along. If I just get rid of the pests themselves then the soldiers have to reason to be there in the first place. So far biodiversity gardening has worked for me.
