Will creeping fig adhere to vinyl fence?

A.

Probably not very well. This is a very slick surface. Maybe you can tack in some chicken wire, or any other metal wire fencing. Wood would be best, but this might not be an option in this case.

Creeping Fig will attach to anything, so to keep it from spreading would require its removal entirely.

Q. What are these bugs pests on my ficus (creeping fig)? If yes, how can I control them?

Brownish looking spider like insects with six legs and 2 long antennae live in the creeping fig outside. They seem to have stunted its growth . When I water the plant they crawl up the wall. What could they be and what do I do about them? They are not like the spider mites I see on images. They are about half inch in size including legs. Tick like looking body. Thanks for your help

Your photo did not come through. I will be unable to identify the pest in question.

I can give your a few articles that will help though: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/special/organic/natural-home-pesticides-organic-garden-pest-control.htm
