Pests aren’t usually too much of a problem on outdoor crops, but in greenhouses commons pests include aphids, glasshouse whitefly and red spider mite (properly known as two-spotted spider mite). Commercial growers use biological control agents to manage these pests and these are available to gardeners: where to buy. Soft soap is useful for reducing the numbers of pests – use distilled, rain or soft tap water to dilute it. You can also use yellow sticky traps.
