At the mo I am just squiching them with a baby wipe when I find them, but I just found tons at the bottom of the plant under the small leaves.

Will washing up liquid work without killing the plant? At what ratio of water/washing up liquid?

It is just beginning to flower btw.

yes washing up liquid works immediately ime.
I use a good squirt to 500ml. hth smile

Ooh, good tip! Mine have got hundreds of the buggers, and I've been spraying them with Bad Stuff blush.

Yes they are bloody buggers HUGE too, washing up liquid freezes them on the spot (hee hee)

Are you supposed to wipe it off again afterwards? Does it damage the leaves?

Yes, I want to know that PC [(sorry PC grin)

I haven't so will tell you if the leaves shrivel.

I just read that you should limit to 4 fruits a plant. That's a bummer as I only have one.

They shriveled a tiny bit I guess, but not much
