    Pest ID Help



    My first pest

    Sorry for the bad pic (bad camera).. you can see the pest the best on the pitcher to the left.

    I have some ortho, but I read that it's not for all kinds of pests. Is this a pest it will control or do I need to get something else?

    Thanks for the help

    It's hard to tell from the photo. I'm inclined to say "big-a**ed aphids" or spittle bugs. I'd just take the garden hose to them or a spray bottle and swoosh them away and then flush with RO water.

    I second that sentiment.

    Looks like aphids. They squish easily.

    Unless you can fit the plant into a plastic container, full submerged in water, to drown them, I think you may need to go the pesticide route.

    Sevin, Maliathon, or Orthene are all excellent. I use which ever one I come to first, but I have to be careful because the Round-up is right next to them. Round-up = BAD

    That looks like a sarracenia. Be careful with those. I badly burned my sarracenia once spraying with insective. They're very sensitive. I was trying to eradicate mealy bugs

    Yea, I can't go the drowning route .. it's on this sarr and a few others in my outdoor bog.
    I took the ortho route and then rinsed/top water real good about 12 hours later.

    One of my less important sarrs really took a beating from the pests (60% of it is wilted) .. Will this end up dying or coming back? Only thing I really like about it is it's growth .. had about 7 growth points going

    Luckily, they didn't seem to like my expensive bog sarrs, lol
