About Me

This blog started when we lived in a Carwoola, a rural residential area close to Canberra. We are moving to a split lifestyle with an apartment in Civic in Canberra and a larger house at Mallacoota in Victoria. Posts about the new residences will start when we complete the moves.

Aphid control at work

We have a honeysuckle bush outside our kitchen window.  This is a martyr to aphids, to the extent that last year not a single flower opened.  This year I have already given it a burst of white oil which slowed the bugs up somewhat.  However I think the activities of a flock of silvereyes did more to control them.  Unusually for such an active species of bird they stayed around long enough for a couple of snaps.
