Bugs in soil
I've planted a variety of berry plants in my backyard. I already use Sevin Bug Spray for the plant itself, but I noticed bugs IN the soil and one of my blueberry plants has maggots in the roots. I noticed the bugs when I took the plant out to move it to a different place. What can I use in the soil?

In situations like this, I am a big fan of drenching the soil with diluted neem oil. It will deal with pests in the soil and also be taken up by the plant to help ward off anything that is attacking the plant itself.
