Please:  As with any suggestions offered to you, consider your situation and garden before taking action and check with a trusted garden professional in your local area.

Warm weather is time to check for aphids in the daylilies. Many of our members spray with Orthene or Malathion. A granular that works is Di-syston Systemic for the folks who don't like sprays (or sprayers!)

(Cygon 2E & Diazinon originally listed in this article have been removed from the marketplace in the United States.)

A useful source of chemical information could be Green Light Products web site.

Here is an organic soil product worth a try.     Milorganite is a fertilizer many of us use. An interesting web site.
