Is confidor the best treatment for what appears to be aphids on all new growth of pittosporum variegata

Most pest treatments refer specifically to roses, ornamentals or fruit/veg - can any of these be used on general trees in the garden for equivalent pest control.

Answer: Hi Trudy, trees and shrubs that aren’t grown specifically for fruit will generally fall under the classifiacation “ornamentals”. Confidor will give systemic control of sap suckers on your pittosporums. Alternatively for a minor infestation you can use Yates Natrasoap, which has the added benefit of controlling mites as well, which confidor will not.
