PESTS!!!

 

Annoying little things arenít they.

 

We have a problem with Palmetto Bugs (Florida Roaches) wanting to eat flowers, spikes or root tips as they are forming. The Palmetto Bugs tend to do this about two days before a show or a meeting. The rest of the pest pretty much stay away from us.

 

Letís face it we all want the bugs off of our plants but we really do not want to use a lot of chemicals either! So therefore we must use them or other methods effectively. We use our Soap mixtures or pesticides (that we avoid at all cost) in the mornings. You will find me as early as 4:30 to 5:00 AM EST watering our orchids. That is also the same time you will find many pest. The second best time is late in the day, just while the sun is going down. If you spray late in the day BE CAREFUL, you will have to VERY LIGHTLY MIST only. We do mean mist, you do not want the plants to stay wet all night or you will face rot and loose the plant (plants) of many genera.

 

We will be adding to this page as time allows. 

 

Try mixing 1 Tablespoon of Liquid Laundry Soap into a gallon of your fertilizer mixture every week. It will help the insects.

 

here are a few things that you may find in a greenhouse setting:

 

 

This is known as "Fuzzy Scale".  This can be very chalanging and you will need to result to very good pesticides or get the "Black Lady Bugs" that are very costly to help control this.

LADY BUGS!

The above is a fungal rot.
