It is the stem of a rose bushed after being trimed back. The atheds were crawling all over the bush and had to be sprayed

Grrr, I hate the things! Give it a spray with a systemic and watch them die! Mwuahaha!

Oh, sorry. Got carried away there.:O

Washing up liquid and water works to. I've been told that letting a cigarette sit in water until the water turns brown and then spraying that on the aphids also does the job. If you have a smoker in the house ask to borrow the buts.
