Safer Brand Fruit & Vegetable Insect Killer Ready-to-Use, 32 oz. Questions & Answers
Can insect pests survive the winter and affect my garden next year?
Yes, many insect pests can survive cold winters by “overwintering” under plant debris and leaves on the ground. This is why it is very important to remove plant debris after harvesting this year’s crops and then till the soil.
By tilling, you are removing places these insects can “overwinter,” destroying larvae or pupae in the dirt, and burying the eggs so far down in the soil they won’t hatch in the spring.
Very cold winters of the far north may kill the adult insects or larvae, but the eggs may remain unscathed and ready to hatch as the weather warms.
How do I know if my plant is being attacked by an insect or a disease?
If it’s an insect, the plant may have holes in its leaves. Turn the leaves over and you may see the insects themselves clustered on the underside of the leaves. You may also see and feel a sticky substance if it’s an insect because the insect will leave a secretion on the plant.
My neighbor told me I have scales on some of my ornamental plants. What are scale and how do I get rid of them?
Scale are tiny insects that attack many plants, sucking the sap or juices from the plants and plant leaves. Insecticidal sprays and Neem Oil products are effective in controlling these pests. Scale insects can be devastating to fruits, ornamentals, trees and houseplants if the infestation is severe.
