    Vraev : Tonight I have sprayed a "Bayer Provado Plus" product that will work for :
    - Aphips
    - Phytometra gamma
    - metafalca

    So...I meens...those are the most common parassites....let's see.
    It is not easy to look again the plants and to facalize myself on the "new" damages day x day.
    I am taking photos so that I can compare those every day and to check what changes.

    Let's Hope!

    Bye!

    This could be unlikely, but I was looking through one of my plant books, and a pest called an earwig showed up. I had not know that these could be pests, but the book says:

    "Outdoor as well as indoor plants can be affected. They are rarely seen in daytime but at night they chew leaves and flowers, causing ragged holes and edges. Check for them at night - they hide under leaves and flowers - pick off and destroy them."

    I know that earwigs often can be found in dark places, such as a wine cellar. This probably isn't what you have, but it was just a thought. Although, the fact that you know your bugs come out at night fit this one's description, as well as rattler's "big jaws" thing.

    If you are not familiar with this bug, here is a photo I got from searching Google.


    They have that characteristic pincher.

    The fly is not the issue - It is probably a drain fly also called a moth fly. I have very similar bite marks on amny of my plants growing outside and I still have not identified the source.
    for drain fly info:

    let us know if you isolate the biting culprit!
    All proofs inevitably lead to propositions that have no proof. All things are known because we want to believe in them.

    Hello CP30!
    Thanks for your tips because I made some studies this night.
    I went into my cellar and took some photos of the plants.
    I also put a spider inside.Tomorrrow I will put a second spider into cellar habitat.
    Look the photos I have included.

    I though it could be a grasshopper....they eat plants!
    I also though it was a Cockroach....they use to eat / divore everything....even paper when they are hungry!

    But what you told me about those DRain Fly could be real ...because they can develope in very short time and do damage to the plants!

    Look the photos of the dirty water...so I will let evaporate all water in my pots in order to have the place "clean" and not suitable for their larves,ok?

    Take a look to the photos and tell me what you think!

    Thank you very much!

    Mr_Aga

    Hi Folks!
    New UPDATE!
    Yesterday I decided to spend more than an hour to empty all dirty water and all the algae around the pots and the recipients in order to avoid at least larvae reproduction.

    This is how my cellar terrarium looked like before and after :




    As you can see yourself all is more clean and there is no more water inside the plants....for Nepenthes do not matter.

    The evening after I went again in my cellar and with suprice I noticed one walking on the contenitors....:


    Of course I have killed him!
    Anyway I have not to expect no more damages for the plants...but at least I can hope not to have anymore additional eggs in the water and new larvae.

    The latin name of this insect is :

    Phlebotomus papatasi

    and in Italy it lives common in the cellars.

    So CP30 : I have to say you THANK YOU from all my Heart!
    Really! Man..having a so nice place where growing Nepenthes and to could not use it would be really a shame!
    I will you keep all informed!

    Bye!

    Slugs would eat from the center of the leaf.

    I am not trying to say you have roaches, but they can chew on plants too. Happens in my GH sometimes.
