so I've been dealing with aphids the last couple of weeks and I can't seem to get rid of them! I've tried submerging the affected plants in water for 24 hours, which worked for a few days, but they just started to pop up again! Any suggestions on how to get rid of the aphids would be greatly appreciated! Thanks
If you have extra time, take the pot out from your water tray and give your plant a good water spray. It won't get rid of all of the aphids but it's effective and safe for your plants. I manage to reduce the infection by 95% by spraying some of my plants once a day, in a week. Good luck! Willy

Low to moderate numbers of aphids do not harm to leave, But if presents at large number then it may damage to garden. Aphids can also produce large quantities of a sticky liquid known as honeydew, which often turns black with the growth of a sooty mold fungus which distorts growth. Neem Oil is the best insect/pest repellent I believe ever since my sister's garden area was getting infested with aphids and have to contact Exterminator Brooklyn NY, They suggested using neem oil if in future they faced any fungus or any pest related problems in her garden area.
