The Q&A Archives: Black Bugs in Campanula

Question: How do I care for my campanula flowers after discovering black bugs in the flowers section?

Answer: It's difficult to recommend a control without first knowing what the bugs are. Try washing the pests off with plain water. If they return, capture a few in a plastic film canister or clean pill bottle and take them to your local extension office for identification and recommendation for control. Contact Oregon State University Cooperative Extension, 15210 NE Miley Rd., Aurora 97002-9543; phone 503-678-1264.
