The Q&A Archives: Insects on Plant

Question: What can I use when I see the plant are eaten by tiny insects

Answer: Try rinsing the plant off with a strong stream of water from the hose. This should dislodge the pests. If they return, capture a few and take them to your local garden center for identification. There are lots of products to use but not all will work against all insects and not all are safe to use on all plants. Try hosing them off first - that might be the solution. Hope so!
