Hi Tweeters,I had read that with patience plants that are overrun with aphids will eventually balance out as aphid eaters like ladybugs will move in and eat the pest so I withheld the spray bottle of soapy water this year.  That resulted in my 3 honeysuckle's buds all dying from the aphids and looking terrible.  I thought the few ladybugs I had seen would step up but it wasn't until families of English Sparrows swarmed in eating everyone of them in sight that my buds became blooms providing a source of nectar to the many hummers around here.  I'll still discourage the sparrows but sometimes you have to give credit where it's due...https://www.flickr.com/photos/131774887@N06/51363397443/in/datetaken/All the best,John D'AntoniWenatchee/Malaga
