Ewwww. Can someone tell me what these nasty gray bugs infesting my kale are, and more importantly, how do I get rid of them?

    aphids. get ladybugs (which you generally can buy by the canister at gardening stores).

    That's so funny - my 6 year old saw them and said, we need ladybugs. How did he know?! Thank you!!!

    I also hear marigolds are a natural bug defense...?

    I am guessing he knows the same way Cooper knows, Mrs. Hackett. Coop is obsessed with aphids right now. :-)

    And yes Marigolds help with bugs too. But ladybugs are the best for aphids.
