    Hey Dustin,

    try trizacide (or othene). If neps are more resistant than dews, I use the full dose on dews (for scale). They just loose their dew for a couple of days. Its systematic also (2 month protection) !

    Found at your local Lowes or Home Depot.

    Just remember to treat all possible infected plants as the bug can build up a resistance!

    Maybe trading when the plants are dormant (if applicable) has something to do with the success rate.

    I agree. One the one hand, any plants that I brought home plants with pests were all from commercial nurseries--some of them highly trusted nurseries with phytosanitary certificates. On the other, all the trades I've done have been free of pests.

    I also second the idea of quarantining plants upon arrival. I usually quarantine for a month. It is easier to deal with a single infected plant in quarantine than an entire infected collection.

    Quarantine is not a sure way though. Many pests, at least for me, have wings and alight on my precious outdoor plants (nearly all of them).

    Or they crawl.

    But then I mostly get aphids, caterpillars, and ... oh, I forget what else.

    Today i looked over my caesar and found a few more small colonies under the leaves so i scrubbed them off with a cotton ball treated with the insecticide, and thats about all for today.

    should i treat my drosera and pings with it too? i treated a couple of my drosera and so far it doesn't seem to do any damage so i guess i can treat the rest. im just not sure with the pings.

    Based on everything I read in this thread today, I think I will be throwing away the plant I pictured on the first page. Good luck in the battle with your plants.
