In the country, every year the gooseberry gives a plentiful harvest, the berries are beautiful and large. Last year in the spring, as soon as the leaves appeared, they began to dry and curl. I looked - and there the bugs are sitting on them, chewing. What kind of pests are these? How to deal with them? Because of them, I remained without gooseberries, they ate flowers too.
This is a shoot aphid. To get rid of it, it is necessary to carry out early spring spraying before budding. Processing must be carried out with non-seccides (actellic, wofatox, karbofos, hostaquik, etc.). Of the popular methods of combating aphids, you can use a soap solution in soft water (300 g per 10 liters of water) or herbal preparations. You can also use white mustard powder to combat this pest. To do this, you need to insist 10 g of powder for two days in 1 liter of water, strain and bring 200 ml of the solution to a volume of 1 liter before spraying.
