The Q&A Archives: Bugs on my cannas

Question: Please help! My cannas have bugs all over them.
Some of the bugs are red and so tiny you can barely see them and the other bugs are white.
Some of the white bugs are also very tiny but seem to move fast and the other white bugs are small but fatter and seem to stay in one spot.
Can you tell me what they are and how to get rid of them? Thank you!

Answer: Charissa,

Those bugs may or may not be pest of the cannas. I would not do anything if you don't see that they are damaging the plants. If they are damaging the plants try a general purpose insecticide. Your local Home Depot garden center folks can recommend an appropriate product.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
