    I know this is the pitcher plant forum, but I figure there would be more help here. My problem is with Thirps on my vfts. I tried the water treatment and it did not work well. I read that Orthene was good for Thrips, but Nebraska has band Orthene, diazinon, and Malathion. What other alternative pesticides can I use? Need help a.s.a.p., my plants won't make it much longer.

    Sevin will work on thrips and should be fairly safe for VFT. Try and find the water based concentrate or a powder form. You need to get good coverage, particularly on the undersides of the leaves. Sevin is a contact only insecticide so try not to wash it off.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Tanks Tony, I'll give Sevin a try. It's hard to get good quick help here at this website.
