    Best of luck,

    actually it would do good. if would keep scale from getting on the plant in the future. once they are on the plant it is very hard to get rid of them with insecticide, they stay glued to the leaf, and the insecticide never enters their body

    If you use systemic, it works, I had a HUGE infestation, that I killed with Orthene.

    Well, I looked for Orthene for, like, ever, but I couldn't find the right kind anywhere... you say systemic? Okay, I actually did find several different systemic Orthene variations.. what *exactly* should it say on the front? I'll go and get some the first chance I get, I just need to know exactly what to get..

    If you do get orthene be very careful with it it`s one of the most dangerous pesticides on the market,as well as the most afective!

    Yes, but I just need to know exactly what KIND of Orthene to get... it's incomprehendable (oooo... big word!!!! ^_^) how many kinds and variations of Orthene they have on the WalMart shelves.

    There are no aphids..

    And BTW, I cut off the sickly, overly-curled, premature pitchers, because they might've infected the three perfectly healthy pitchers coming up. Yes, I finally have three perfectly healthy pitchers coming up. Another wierd thing with the sick pitchers I cut off was that the leaf part of the pitchers just... kind of... disintigrated... nothing was eating it, and yet it didn't show any signs of blackening or dieing... parts of the leaves just... just... disappeared...
