Our okra plants are infested with aphids. What would be the best approach in ridding them of aphids? The aphids are on the new growth / immature okra.

I remember using an orange oil solultion before on some flowers, but wasn't sure if this would affect any of the vegetables (the okra are surrounded by tomatoes, cucumbers, yellow squash and bell peppers.

Ok, thanks for the link. I did look at that, but didn't know if it would affect any of the vegetables I have planted. Also, when it says citrus oil spay, what concentration would I use, and would it be safe on vegetables?

use only about an ounce per gallon. I would dust w/ DE afterwards.
