Flying Ant-Like Insects?
    #4252357 - 06/03/05 03:50 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Hey, have any of you guys seen these? They look like flying ants and are attracted to light. They love my plant room. They can't be ants, their bodies are not exactly like ants. They're not termites either. What could they be? :rolleyes:

I'm not sure what they are, but they are very common. I just found a bunch flying around in my girlfriends room last night, all over her salvia and brugmansia plants. How do you kill these things effectively? Will tobacco water work, and does it stain the leaves?

If they aren't as strong as flys, get those yellow sticky traps from ebay or where ever you want. I had aphid problems and those yellow traps work excellent. I had a stupid fly in my plant area and he landed on the trap and then just flew off of it. So it doesn't work for larger bugs but it sure is effective against the smaller ones. Neem oil is way more effective then tobacco water I found, but that is just me. Also tobacco water gives you the risk of giving the tobacco virus to your plants. One of my saliva plants had the virus now, the leaves at the tips curl in sorta like they are deformed.

Also tobacco is lethal when nicotine is extracted to a point. Actually pure nicotine is one of the most dangerous compounds from what I was reading on a chemistry website once. So if you boil tobacco in water that is really big no no! So be careful, nicotine is lethal at like 50 ug which is a extremely small amount!
