Greedy ladybugs wanted


It’s a good idea, when inspecting the health of your forthcoming backyard farm’s trees, to put your glasses on.  You will find that your three lemon trees and one olive tree are riddled with aphids.  Those slimy horrible creatures (whose only purpose on earth is to drive gardeners mad) are playing fast and loose with the edible vegetation.  After consulting the oracle, I went out there with the dishwashing liquid and I think I might have nipped them in the bud.  I even saw a ladybug, one ladybug.  One ladybug can hardly make a dent in the population of aphids in my future backyard garden.

If the dishwashing liquid doesn’t work, I will have no choice but bring out the big guns, no more mr nice guy, no more pussyfooting and shilly-shallying around the problem.  I plan to hit them with the one substance to which they have no defence, the one thing that will annihilate them once and for all.  Oh yes, I plan to spray them with …


If that doesn’t work …


That will show them who’s the boss around here.
