what is the best solution for aphids on my apple tree it is only may and it is infested already



First check and see if you also have ants, if you do the aphids will never go away until the ants are gone.

If you have ants get some tanglefoot and apply it to the tree following the directions, you will wrap the base of the tree with tanglefoot guard paper then spread the tanglefoot on the paper. Most of the time you can just spray the tree with a jet of water and that will get rid of the aphids, if not you will need to use some type of soap solution. I have never used anything but water but I do know a lot of the orchard owners where I live use
Safers Soap.
