Q.Insects On Jaboticaba Bush Soil

Zone 03307 | Anonymous added on October 3, 2021 | Answered

HEEEELLLPPPP! What are these creatures in my Jabo tree/bush soil. I already cleaned about 100 off the soil. Watered it and then a half hour later more! Should I quarantine my tree/bush? What can I do to get rid of them. I also noticed a bunch of little red worms too.

Worms are fine, millipedes are not, at least in these numbers.

Millipedes will resort to eating living plant material, which can start to damage your tree. Control is simple, though. Bait traps that have carbaryl will take them out. Keeping the debris swept up will prevent them from staying around the area.
