    I've had some success with Orthenex against these pests. However, it's hard to completely eradicate them, and I've only succeeded in doing so after repeated doses. Fortunately, I've noticed no slowing of growth on the plants I've treated.

    Hey, great to hear that Max! Um, what dilution did you use? Did you just spray it on the soil surface or use it as a drench?

    Thanks!

    I sprayed the plants completely, but not so much the soil as I only saw them on the plants, and used the dilution listed on the bottle, maybe a touch weaker. I also physically removed as many as I could, but if you have more than a few neps infected, that could be tedious. But the spray seemed to kill them. I think the key was to do a few applications, a few days apart, to kill any stragglers and newly hatched ones. Good luck!
