So I soaked a sarr for 48 hours after find a few aphids. Brought it back out and inspected others. Found more aphids. Just a very small amount hiding under sarr flowers that haven't opened yet. I can't soak all my plants. Since the infestation is not bad yet I decided to order lady bugs. I don't have alot of open pitchers yet this year and hopefully they steer clear of the vft so we will see what they do. Anyone ever have luck this way?

They have been released! They're hungry! Surprisingly none flew away in the 15 minutes I observed them ImageImageImageImage
