Host Richard Hentschel talks about monitoring for insects on our houseplants. Typical ones are spider mites, aphids and scale insects. Management differes depending on the insects found. Control can be as simple as a stream of water up to having to use an organic or inorganic insecticide labeled for houseplants.
Green Side Up is a weekly gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
