I have a very important update .. couple things I'll try to shorten up..
1st I took a few more pics as we know my camera works great sometimes but more often then not it sucks!! So here is what I found at 5AM in the morning.
As I was preparing to take a pictures of the plant again I see baby like gnats flying around the plant and flying closely around on leaves and around base of plant.
Now here is another factor I had not added to this issue, until now. In the past few weeks we noticed these gnats around our house driving us crazy! So a few of you already know where this is going I'm betting because with in all this crap is the answer.. I do believe..
K, The gnats .. we done a search on line came up with this gnats called Fungas gnats also fruit flies/gnats. I thought fruit flies and a few people thought Fungas gnats and that offened me because I'm a butt sometimes! I insisted " only to myself " it wasn't a Fungas gnats because that would mean there is bugs in my plants and my plants had no issues!! See how I'm a jerk sometimes...
This all happened throughout the last 7 to 10 days. So in my defense we keep a basket on the table that's always has fresh veggies n fruits in it. I personally have delt with the fruit flies before and I thought were ok at that time. Everything done so well moving it inside ect.. and I had learned here last year to drop my watering for winter and I try not to soak my plants in the winter because I had a hard drying them in the past so I water daily or every other day but nothing gets soaked and they have a fan 24/ 7. Right now my plant are about dry for the most part I watered them yesterday. Also I read on Orkin web site it's pretty common to have both gnats.
I believe this is the answer. I have Fungas gnats and fruit flies/gnats. Now the questions are:
1.) Am I correct?
2.)if so , will neem kill this bug?
3:) if neem will not kill this yucky pest then what will kill it?
I went ahead added new pics. I don't think that's going to be much help. I do not believe my camera picked up the gnats crawling on the plant or flying around it. I just thought maybe one of these will be better than the 1st ones posted.
for your help,and your time. Have a greater Monday than the last?!?! Idk sounded good in my
