I have lots of small black flies in my patio tubs and the plants look poorly.

United Kingdom Gb

Please is there a loution without losing my plants?
I live very close to seafront and the air is often very salty as it is a very windy town.



Welcome to GOY Minthouse. Sorry I can't answer your question but I am sure there will be lots of people who will help you.

Must be lovely to live right by the sea - even though you are having problems with flies at the moment!

Do you mean blackfly, aphids - these are tiny flies, rather than just small? Buy an insecticide that treats aphids if that's what they are. If they're bigger than a millimetre, then I don't know, but I'd try and insecticide anyway. You can buy sprays ready made up, everyone has trouble with aphids, so the treatments are easy to find
