What to Do About Symphylans

Anonymous added on May 6, 2011 | Answered

These bugs are killing my plant (I think). I noticed the growth in the last couple of days slowing down on my tomatoes. So my buddy said flush the soil and all these bugs floated up, so I instantly got on the computer and searched to see what they are and they were Symphylans! They say to get rid of them by deep tilling or pesticide. I won't use pesticide, and I don't want to disturb the roots.  I was thinking that every 4 days I could just flush out the 2-gallon pot with about 4 gallons of water and drown them. Would this work?
