How do I get rid of the four line plant bug? I was at a garden center a few streets down from my Home Depot in Nortport a few years ago and that's where I picked up a plant with the bug. I did'nt know at the time what it was. I cleanup every fall and used a spray, but to now avail. Help

You can control these pests with applications of acephate (Orthene) or carbaryl (Sevin) or you can use a systemic soil drench such as Bayer Advanced Tree and Shrub Insect Control. The systemic moves throughout the entire plant so when insects nibble on the leaves they get a dose of the insecticide. Best wishes with your landscape.
