The small pests like to hide under leaves and within certain crops like lettuce and broccoli.

Checking regularly and spraying when necessary will help keep them under control.

Gardeners should also avoid over-fertilising plants as this will lead to new growth which aphids love.

Aphids particularly like young, tender plants so ensure fertiliser is applied either all at once or in smaller amounts over the season.
