climbing eunymous evergreens

Zone 60448 | Anonymous added on July 26, 2018 | Answered

We have 2 different varieties of climbing evergreens by our porch. This year the yellow/green one seems to be putting out this terrible odor towards evening to the point where it seems their a million flies around and we've checked for any animals in their and nothing and if you smell it at nite it's awful everyone keeps asking whats that smell by the door. Any ideas what to do? Thankyou

    Perhaps an infestation is attracting the flies.

    Check for signs of pests or sticky substance coming from the plant.

    Honeydew is the residue from pests and can attract ants and flies.
