Warm weather breeds more aphids

With the recent spell of very hot weather in most of the UK, aphid populations are growing rapidly and you may suddenly notice the insects all over previously healthy plants  - if you can spray them off with them with a hose jet early,  you can reduce the problem for now, but at these temperatures  they are breeding faster than their natural predators can eat them.
