    Insecticide and pest control

    OK. Lay it on the line. What are options for insecticides when it comes to cp's? I sometimes just stare at my plants like i'm watching them grow (who doesn't right) and its not uncommon for me to find a few aphids on my capensis so I'll pick em off with tweezers. but today I was staring and the capensis was thicker with aphids than usual. Also on my Rafflesiana I found a pinhead sized pinkish fuzzy bug that I believe to be a mealy. so even more concerned i kept picking and searching and i found what looked like a baby slug in my alice's soil. (to fat to be fungus knat larva i tink) so I'm hoping I'm not on the verge of some revenge of the bugs pandemic here. I'm not about to do anything rash but just want to know any and all options. I'm really interested in home remedies too. And while your posting lemme know what ya think of my setup.
    Thanks guys.

    Personally, this will be my primary option from now on.

    I'd like to explore this option, quoting Aviator:

    Back in my Dupla style planted aquarium days I did the DIY C02 with yeast and sugar water...
