I've got a sloe bush that has been INFESTED with the little green blighters for a few years now. I have tried all sorts of chemicals and I have a whole zoo's worth of ladybirds in a variety of colours, but they've laid their eggs and they keep reappearing.
Is there any hope for the tree or should I give it a sacrificial burning? :confused:

Do you not get much frost in winter to kill them off? You could prune the bush hard, and plant some companion plants like Marigolds, as a sacrificial plant, next to it, then spray the newly pruned bush, And hope they give it a mis this time around. Natural control only works well in a glass house (contained) environment. Good luck.
