black fly

I have been away for 2 weeks and have returned to find the Broad beans plants covered in Black fly. How can I treat this without harming Bees



I use a hose pipe at close quarters so I can see what I am doing and wash them off gently, whilst squidging them too!

It nay help if you have a few nasturtiums growing nearby. Blackfly love them and may leave your broad beans alone.
