Broccoli - help with bugs

Post  learningtogarden on 7/2/2012, 5:47 pm

This if my first year doing a square foot garden. I planted brussels sprouts and broccoli. My brussels sprouts were doing well until they got covered with little tiny bugs and died. Today i saw the tiny bugs on my broccoli leaves. Is there anything i can do to save it? Looks like a little bit of broccoli is finally coming out but i am afraid it might die too.

Sounds like APHIDS!
IF
those bugs are Aphids: Mix a tblsp of dishwashing liquid in a gallon of water. Fill a spray bottle and spray your plants with it. Be sure to spray the stalks and the underside of the leaves. Do this for a few days, or until they disappear. Also consider removing damaged leaves which are quite good eating when cleaned, cut up and cooked!

also, don't ladybugs LOVE aphids? I think I used ladybugs once to kill off the aphids and they were gone within a day. Then, the ladybugs fly off once their work is done.

The Ladybugs will do a fine job IF they're handled correctly.
