Aphid Attack

We seem to have a pretty massive infestation of Potato Aphids on the Tomato plants. The worst affected being the Reise Tomato.

There is some yellowing in the bottom, but the plant does not seem to be affected badly (I might be wrong)

But then we spotted quite a few Hover Flies buzzing around and keeping the Aphid population in check :)

And we sprayed some Neem last Sunday, and I have been hand picking the leaves where I spot a massive infestation and destroy them. But then it does not seem to have much impact on the population, new colonies seem to be emerging on the young leaves every day.

We will be spraying Neem again this weekend and hopefully that will help keeping the Aphid population in check.

And a picture of the exotic Reise Tomato
