My honeysuckle has aphids. I was outside and thought it looked funny, so grabbed an end to examine closely - and realized I was grabbing tons and tons of gross little bugs.
My skin is still crawling.
It was just about to burst forth with cheery bright blooms. I love the smell of honeysuckle. Yes, I know it's an invasive pest - but I love the smell. It reminds me of summers at home. Last summer - and we live in the middle of the city, remember - I saw a hummingbird for a fleeting second on my honeysuckle. We have just one plant, in a large container, with the goal of having a nice fall over a fence, into the ugly alley behind our house. I thought we couldn't go wrong with a hardy weedy honeysuckle.
And now my skin is seriously crawling. Ugh.
Insecticidal soap? I don't even know what that is. This is seriously a bummer. Any ideas from anyone with a green thumb?
