    Thumbs down

    Ok, so the winner is...Diazinon. I'm going to try some out this weekend. I was going to try Malathion, but then I read somewhere something like there's a chance it could knock a gene completely out of your DNA. So...that's not a good thing to play with.

    I'll let you guys know what happens.

    Is there any way to knock out the whole population?

    I have used diazinon before on cps without any problem. It is usually a fairly safe chemical to use provided you:

    Use a waterbased formula
    Don't treat during the heat of the day
    Don't expose the plants to very high light levels while wet with chemicals
    Follow the label for dilution ratios

    As always it is still best to test out for the first time on a few plants.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    hello again from newbie..

    after discovering thrips and today worms in my VFT, I decided to go with ortho garden care which has diazinon at 22.4%, but I'm not sure what dilution ratio to use, there's no specification for VFT's on the label.

    Thanks!!!

    OOOOh yes [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] . I had theese things pretty bad last year. Completely engulfed one of my pings [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]. It was disgusting. This year, I had a lot in my sarracenia/ping/vft pot. They were caught in many numbers by my two pings, but were still rather annoying. After I introduced three large utrics into the pot, I haven't seen any since [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] . I now love Utrics [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] .

    I use terrestrial Utrics like nanthaniel mentioned. They are very effective but for a sphagnous potting mix like Nepenthes or heliamphora soil you might need to use epiphytic utrics, which are tougher to grow and harder to find.
