Houseplant Insect Control
The entomologists at the University of Kentucky provide a commonsense look at effective houseplant insect control at their Web site www.uky.edu/Agriculture/Entomology/entfacts/trees/ef406.htm. Beginning with the idea that "prevention is the best medicine" and moving on to descriptions of typical pests and how to control them, this site should be on the bookmark list of every houseplant owner.
