    Stop (a derivative of the word for a cat)-footing around and use a systemic.

    The females hatch in spring will be producing live young via parthenogenesis within 5 days. A systemic gets the lot.

    A substance going into the plant sap, thus killing any bug even if you did not spayed them directly and staying active for a long time (~1 month).

    Try the Bayer advanced 3 in 1, it works on almost anything (bug, fungus, mother in law), just follow the directions on the bottle. Don't use more than needed it won't work faster or better
    You should be able to find it in your local target / walmart too.

    My thoughts exactly. Now, never having needed to yet do so, I will ask this Q:
    Being that some plants are more sensitive to such things than others, are there any tips from those of you who have used such procedures? Same concentration as for any "typical" plant, for example?

    I use a systemic that contains thiacloprid ( Bayer's Provado). It's used at the recommended concentration or it can be bought 'ready mixed'. I have yet to find a carnivorous plant or orchid that it affects detrimentally.
    However, I will add my customary rider.
    Great care should be taken to not affect beneficial insects, bees primarily. Do not spray on open flowers or anything else really if they are accessible to bees. If using outside please spray in late evening.

    Please follow the manufacturer's instructions.
