The Q&A Archives: mites anyone?

Question: my indoor vegetative plants get attacked by mites. what can i do? also, aphids ravage my hibiscus every fall about 2 weeks after i bring it indoors. HELP!

Answer: The best way to keep outdoor insects outdoors is to thoroughly rinse your plants off before taking them indoors. Since there might also be some eggs on the stems and leaves of your plants, treat them with insecticidal soap before bringing them indoors. That should take care of any hitchhikers. Best wishes with your plants!
