As previously posted, I have terrible, annoying, black bugs that are disgusting and overcoming every pot in my collection.
It was suggested that I flood them out, unfortunately, I don't have the water resources to do that.
Upon further contemplation, I recalled how they died instantaneously upon leaving the protection of the wet soil and hitting the hot deck.
Would allowing the Sarrs soil to go dry for a few days put them at risk any? Flooding can cause rot, afterall...I don't want to risk rot, or anything else truly bad. Just didn't know, as letting the soil dry out would be easier than repotting every last plant with the hope there won't be a re-infestation because I didn't get the last speck of dirt out from a pot, or because they hocus-pocus their way back in there. And again, the amount of water that'd take is insane.
Then again, maybe I should repot everything since the overuse of Neem between the mites and trying to kill the beetles could be toxifying the soil and eventually killing everything.
Thoughts? Thank you!
(ps. I'm sorry for flooding the forums lately. While I'm not exactly a newb, these are problems I haven't experienced before and aren't on the standard care page)
