I have little tiny (what I think are ants) at the bottom of my house plants. They come out when I water the plants and they are so small that you feel them crawling on your skin before you see them. They are always down at the bottom of the flower pot. Are these ants that I am experiencing? What do I do to get rid of them? I need an effective treatment before my husband throws me and the plants outside!!!
diatamaceous earth and buttermilk diluted with water for cabbage bugs
Can a houseplant recover from whitefly damage?
Yes, they can. Once the whiteflies have been eliminated, just care for it as you normally would and it has a pretty good chance of recovering.
I change my soil yearly and no matter what, I seem to get little black flying bugs in my soil. How can I get rid of them? I grow my plants in pots. What is the best way to rid these pesty bugs?
It sounds like you have fungus gnats. This article will help:
I have recently moved onto a new estate (where they are still building). Over the last couple of months, I have had a lot of earwigs at the front/back doors, they are also coming into the house. I have found them all over the house (lounge/kitchen/stairs/bedrooms/bathrooms), which is starting to make me itch. How can I stop them? My neighbour's have got them in their sheds as well.
Earwigs also need damp areas to survive. You can set up earwig traps by rolling up a section of newspaper and wetting it down slightly. Place the damp newspaper roll into one of your problem areas and leave it there overnight. The earwigs will crawl into the newspaper and in the morning, you can dispose of it by burning, dousing it with boiling water or immersing it in a solution of water and bleach. You can also try pesticides as a last resort.
