The new growth on my Logwood has been infested with aphids. I usually see bright green ones around here but these are a dark gray color. Neem seems to have had no effect on them. Any suggestions?

systematic insecticide (like seven brand) should work great at killing the little buggers. You might want to use an old tooth brush to wipe any heavily infested spots as well (as long as its a soft bristle type).

Thanks Mike. It just so happened that I had a bottle of Sevin in the garage. I hope it does the trick.
