Post aphids on apple tree
Have a great day to all! I have a little concern regarding my apple tree, I plant the tree 2 years ago then i noticed a week ago that there are aphids in my apple tree, the texture of the aphids are reddish/brownish in color covered with a cottony-like white wax.I would like to ask how can i control this kind of aphids without using any insecticides, I don't like that the other trees will be infested.Any suggestion will be appreciated.Thank you in advance!

You can try to spray them off with water. Also, over time with organic methods and diversity, other creatures (like ladybugs) will eat them.
