Springtime check-up of fruit trees:

Aphids love young shoots

They are only a few millimeters and often appear out of nowhere. Large numbers of aphids preferably colonize young leaves and shoots. To avoid unpleasant surprises fruit trees should be regularly checked for aphids in case of increasing temperatures. As soon as the first pests are visible, often, just a hard jet of water helps to wash them away. Once on the ground, the flightless aphids are not able to climb a tree.
