    AHHHHH! LOCUST GRASSHOPPER THINGS!!!!

    Hi all...

    i walked into my greenhouse this morning to find my prized S. alata w/ 3ft. tall pitchers total infected with little baby locust brasshopper things! every pitcher got munched some what-and i think they might be spreading! i caught as many as i could in a plastic bag and started steping on them and shking them around...but alas i only got ~50%...

    Anybody have any ideas on hopw to get rid of them? i was gonna chop of all my sarracenia pitchers anyway (try some expierements with ash), but now im gonna do it just to avoid hoppers!

    Any other ideas? please!?!?

    i do believe the insecticide made with chrysanthamum flowers is harmless to Neps and such.......cant remember if i tried it on Drosera or Utrics though........

    Pyrethrin. Should be ok for most CPs. This is a "contact" insecticide and will knock down the pests in short order. As with all sprays use with caution on Drosera.

    A few geckos would clean up the pests.

    Orthonex from Orthene - systemic, works great for scale and aphids, and I've never had a problem with it harming the plants.

    You should be able to find a Pyrethrin based pesticide anywhere that sells insecticides. It's the inactive ingredients you have to worry about. A test application before general use is always in order with unknown products. For specific product names refer to:
