    I'm using it right now to get rid of some caterpillars that are munching up my Drosera graomogolensis. Too soon to tell.

    Thanks NAN. ill look into it.
    hopefully the orthene took care of it.
    if not ill give it this stuff a shot.
    but with my trip to florida in a week and a half, i dont know if ill have the time to give it a shot. the least i can try and do is just hold back the thrips and deal with a few more rounds of retarded pitchers.

    That's a creative approach. I like it! I'd be scared that aphids or something else would negate the benefits. But then again, I haven't tried that Having a porch on the second floor seems to be a deterrent to bad critters, but the bees, flies, and fungus gnats make it up here.

    Aphids are about the first thing to disappear with that treatment. A lot of insect predators consider aphids to be tasty little candy bars.
