Thread: The color of evil is yellow

    Well, I've identified the pests in my collection as being yellow and tiny. I'm sure they are doing most of the damage, but I'm not sure if they are the ones making webs on some of my plants. Hopefuly, I'll be getting Ortho's bug be gone, and eradicate whatever it is.

    Now I'm curious. The things that usually make webs in greenhouses are red or orange. Tell me, are the yellow things super duper small? Do they run around fast? Are there several different sizes of them?

    You've had me wondering several days whether they were aphids or preditory mites or something else.

    Are you getting actual damage to your plants or just tiny cobwebs in the soil and on the pitchers?
    I had fungus gnats (tinier than fruitflies and they make little cobwebs) in my highland chamber for a while but they don't actually hurt anything (that I know of) but I didn't want them living in there either so I put a big sundew in there and that pretty much cured it.

    In the most severe cases, leaves were deformed and spotted, with poor growth. Plants showing theese symptoms had the yellow, sluggish, things that are smaller than fruit flies. Plants with webbing on them show signs of poor growth and leaf problems. I also found little gray, fast moving bugs in one of my newly repotted N. x Judith Finn. Wether it's ten, or one pest, I'm hoping the stuff will work. I hope I'll get it today. Oh, and all of my plants show the presence of the yellow things.

    I would definatley try someting a little more mild than Bug B Gone
    something like an insecticidal soap.
    Soaps or more correctly refered to as salts are much safer for you and your plants not to mention the environment.
    Safer brand insecticidal soap is available from Home Depot in the US its sold in a green spray bottle.IMO
