Fly Pest Control

Greenhouses are the perfect place for pests and diseases to thrive - greenhouses not only provide shelter from the weather, they also tend to be warm and humid which produce the perfect conditions for pests to multiply. One of the most common insects to flourish in the warm, humid conditions within your greenhouse are aphids.

Aphids are sap-sucking insects that feed on foliage, flowers and stems - with some aphids even sucking sap from the roots of the plants. The most common aphids to be found in your greenhouse are greenfly and blackfly. Aphid infestations are simple to identify - you'll find them living around shoot tips, flower buds and on the underside of young leaves. Aphids cause stunted growth, with plants leaves being curled or distorted, weakening the plants. Some aphids can transmit plant virus diseases as they move from one plant to another - this can be a particular fly pest control problem when growing soft fruits - strawberries and raspberries - as well as some vegetable crops - tomatoes, cucumbers and other members of the marrow family. Aphids also excrete a liquid known as honeydew, which attracts ants. Ants and aphids will transfer diseases between plants inside and outside the greenhouse.

There are a few simple ways in which you can reduce the chance of aphid damage within your greenhouse. Keeping your greenhouse clean and free of diseased plants is simple to do. The next thing you can do is use a Suplur Candle to kill any pests in any nooks and crannies. You can also use Sticky Traps all year round in your greenhouse - these will not only catch flying insects, they will also show you what pests are resident in your greenhouse. You can also reduce the chance of flying insects by fitting Mesh to opening windows and a Fly Pest Control Screen to the door.
