The aphids are responsible for giving diseases to the plants. Aphids Home Remedies There are several home remedies for aphids which are easy and can be tried at home. Some of the popular home remedies for aphids are: 1. One of the simplest home remedies for aphids is to cut orange peels into smaller pieces and mix these pieces with two cups of water for around 20 seconds. Use sieve to separate water from the pieces and then mix two tablespoons of baby shampoo. Now take a spray bottle and fill it with this mixture. Use strong jet of plain water to spray the plant first. Try testing this spray on a single plant, in case if the spray is too strong it can damage the whole garden. You can spray it on all the parts of plant such as stems and leaves. 2. Take a cup of cooking oil and add two teaspoons of liquid dish soap, make them into a mixture.
