Whaaa, aphids have infested my fruit trees. The apple and cherry tree we bought 2 months back have aphids on them. I have gone out several times a day and picked them off and squished them, put out a yellow dish of soapy water, and finally went and bought some eco friendly spray…to no avail. Anyone have any suggestions, besides giving up on our trees

    Aphids are attracted to yellow things. You could try putting up yellow bucket lids with Vaseline smeared on them as traps.
