    Whenever the topic of aphid killing / pesticides come up at CPUK, the European contingent are quick to recommend an effective and safe for plants product called Provado. So I asked Aidan if there was an American equivalent of this Provado and a research on his part yielded this link:

    Bayer Products

    So I typed aphids in their search and came up with this as stores that sell it:

    Store Locators

    You will notice some familiar chains: Lowes, Osh, True Value...

    Oh. I thought this topic was about cheese. I was gonna say provolone is quite delicious.

    I really don't know. I just followed Aidan's link and then punched in aphids in their search. I think there are other appropriate products within Bayer's offerings. I've never used a pesticide before, so I'm not sure of the best or most appropriate product.

    How about lady bugs instead. I have ladybugs in the yard eat my aphids. The carnivorous plants eat the lady bugs. It is a great vicious cycle.

    Well... um... ladybugs being outside is difficult to control. I saw a bunch of them in our attic in April. ieven put a couple in one of my Neps. The pitcher promptly died. I don't trust ladybugs as a healthy choice for CP's.

    If anyone wgo has experience with using systemic pesticides can hone down the best product from Bayer, I'd be thrilled. My quick search is based upon limited knowledge.

    Is Orthene (acephate) out of favor now for aphid and scale control?

    It works great on Sarracenia (I've only tried it on purpurea though) and VFTs, although Drosera are slightly shocked by it and tend to lose their dew for some days (Drosera adelae seems especially sensitive to acephate).

    I spray my VFTs and Sarracenia with acephate periodically as a preventive measure, but I don't spray my Drosera with it unless it's absolutely necessary (unless I see aphids on them, in which case I regard Orthene/acephate as the lesser of two evils).
    Be happy in the travel--there is no destination
