Its beginning of fall here in Oceanside, California and I’ve noticed some pests on my okra plant. They seemed like aphids to me at first but it looks like these something else!
They seem to be sucking the sap and eating the leaves…not good at all.
They are right at the apex of the okra buds. I don’t think there’s much chance that the okra can survive.
But I have noticed that okra in general has tremendous resistance to pests, especially whiteflies. One of our okra plants was infested with whiteflies but still grew healthy and produced a lot of okra!
To get rid of these pests, I use this product by Dr. Bronners. Mix 1 tbsp per gallon of water and these pests die instantly
That’s all for now! Happy Gardening
