My insect problem has gone from bad to very bad. We are forced to leave the greenhouse for up to 3 weeks at a time. It gets watered automatically, and heated. I think if I was around full time there might be hope. When we leave, the insects just go nuts. I have aphids, whiteflies, and now I find mealybugs.
I do have sticky traps and they are filling up, but the problems persist.
My plants are all in beds. The beds are filled with earthworms. Is there any systemic I can use that won't kill the worms? I've tried soap, but it's not doing the job. It's coming to the point where I've had to tear plants out and throw them away. It's starting to look like my lovely greenhouse is going to be worthless to me.
What makes it even worse is that mice and chipmunks have come in through the vents and are eating my plants. We have mouse traps and a live trap for small animals, but so far we're not able to catch them. I have a camera set up and we watch them taking over the greenhouse at night, eating away at all the different plants.
Have any of you experienced these problems? What can I do?
