Pest problems are a plant parents' biggest bugbear, (hold the pun) and if not spotted soon enough, they can overwhelm your houseplant and soon spread to others. Thankfully, our Horty Hints are here to save the day, helping you spot the tell-tale signs and keep your herbaceous bestie looking fresh.
Your plant will tell you when it has an infestation, which can be easily treated with organic insecticides such as our SMC invigorator.
Usually, each type of pest is identifiable by the signs it leaves behind, without having to spot the bugs themselves. See below our list of common houseplant pests, how to spot them, along with treatment remedies:
Spend time socialising
Check in with your plant regularly, to notice any changes.
Now, not next week
Treat pests immediately, don’t leave until that next day off.
Isolate poorly plants away from healthy ones, minimising spread.
If in doubt give research a shout
Research the symptoms.
Treating twice is extra nice
Some pests are resilient or lay eggs which can hatch after a first treatment.
