Hey guys,

A few days ago I encountered my first pest :( I noticed some black/blue spots on my cape sundew and after taking a closer look I noticed all these tiny buys on the leaves. If you look closely at the pictures, you can see white skin castings on the leaves and some twisted leaves. In the book 'The savage garden revised' Peter D’amato recommends using ‘Pyrethrin’, an all-natural insectide, which is even safe enough to use on vegetables. I got a pyrethrin based insecticide (with canola oil) and sprayed some on my sundew. Still waiting for them to die...

I think they're aphids, but I'm not sure, does anyone recognize these?
