Aphids - Plant Lice

Tobacco dust is one of the best things to use when transplanting plants whose roots are attacked by aphids (plant lice). Mix a small handful in the soil where each plant is set. It will rout these sucking insects and also act as a stimulating fertilizer without risk to the roots.
