The Q&A Archives: Milkweed bugs

Question: How do I get rid of the milkweed bugs by using natural means of pest control?
Thank you.

Answer: Ann,
I would start with a product containing pyrethrins. This is a natural product that is short lived in the environment. Spray early in the day while the bugs are still sluggish. Consider too that these pests often don't do enough damage to warrant spraying.
