Larger than your normal aphids, I found them on my willow dome.

i had loads last year on my willow. at the botanic gardens in carnarthen they have a willow tunel. last summer they had to fence it off because the wasps had moved in to feast on the aphids.

Send the wasps my way. I have only seen two ladybirds so far, but I dont think they would eat these as they are huge.

I've been fighting them all year this year. Can't pick them off quick enough. I find the biggest and darkest I've ever seen on willow particularly. Nasty buggers. I'd welcome wasps to clean them out myself.
