    Hey does anybody know how I got aphids? My venus fly trap was in a terrerium, with no other plants and the closest plant was in another room. ??

    Question

    NoFear,
    Aphids could have come in from outside by any number of ways. Through a screen or clinging to clothing. I found one on my T-shirt the other day. My sundew thought it was delicious! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] . It only takes one aphid to start a whole mess of aphids. They don't have to mate to have young (parthenogenesis). So one aphid can create a whole bunch.

    Go find some lady bugs and let them do the work... Just don't let them get eaten too... until they are done at least!

    You can take a flea collar, wrap it in a plastic baggie to make sure that it doesn't touch the soil..

    Like a sandwhich bagige with the top open.

    Then place it in the tank by the plant.

    Or if the plant is in a pot, you can take it out and put it in water over night.

    malathion (sp) diluted down some will work too...but I would try the 1st 2 b4 the last.
