Has anyone tried this trick for aphid control?

I haven't heard about this before but I think one cup is not enough. If I still had my garden I would place Vaseline covered cups everywhere to see how well it works. Make sure and put them out early before aphids infest the plants. I believe this photo is from a mock orange. Aphids would always end up on the mock orange every year.

Good to know.
I am curious to see our group feedback on it. 😄

No, but I will try, also! Then again, all you early-climate gardeners will get to report your results before I will need it 👍


No. The one time I had an infestation of aphids, I ordered ladybugs from Amazon and they took care of the problem, then moved on.


no, but it is going to get its test in a few weeks.

Never heard of this before, but now I know! Thanks!😉


New one for me. Worth a try.

New one for me too but worth the sacrifice of a yellow cup, a stake and some vaseline.


Looks very clever


I haven't tried it but boy wouldn't it be nice if it does work
