Salvia and Insecticide
    #774665 - 07/24/02 11:36 PM (15 years, 9 months ago)

Does anyone know of a good insecticide that isn't too caustic to the plant. I have some annoying little flying bugs setting up shop in my salvia pot and I want to kill tham without damaging the goods. Thanks

I've used insecticides based on neem extract... check the ingredients. Use a fruit and vegetable insecticide so you can remove it easily after for consumption. Also, spray your plants in the evening to avoid leaf burn. Good luck! And... if they're flies, I heard something about letting the soil get dry to kill off the larva, but I'm not sure.

Buy some ladybugs!

Not sure if they'll survive where you are.

That's not actually true (that lady bugs only eat aphids). I know for a fact they'll also eat white fly, mites, and fruit worms. And they're sooooo pretty....

Plus praying mantiis are kinda creepy
