I have been told to spray with plain water, soapy water, various insecticides, neem oil, and even use live lady bugs. So what does the GT braintrust say?

Don't have that problem with black flies now do you?

Lady Bugs are good for aphids and to tell them their house is on fire...

Have @G19Tony hope in a plane and deal with those little bugs.

LOL! I think Gulfstreams go a little too fast for crop dusting.

By the way, that looks like the Brevard County mosquito control plane.

Wow....you really have led a sheltered life.....
Never mind then. If it's something pervy I don't want to know.

And you need to be careful. We don't want to lose you again.

Wish I knew. I've got the same problem with spider mites on my indoor pepper plants.

^^^ I second the above suggestion ^^^ - but with the caveat that you must use ONLY REGULAR DAWN dishwashing liquid and not the anti bacterial version(s), else you'll kill your plants.
Isn't all soap anti-bacterial?

We used to sell a product called Safer Soap. Not sure if that’s still available. Haven’t been in the nursery business since right after college.

Crop dusting-uhmmm....passing gas silently as you walk through a crowded area, leaving a noxious wake as you drift through.
Oh ok, I get it now. Pork Chop does that a lot.
