Pests, Fertilisation & More

Trips Nightmare

Omg! My plants are dying because I cannot seem to get rid of trips (a bug that eats plants). 

As soon as I think I have finally beat them, they come back with a vengeance. I just ordered more minute pirate bugs. Crying

Have you talked to your insurance company? Your insurance might cover thrips infestations.

Yes, I give my plants baths regularly but I do need to do it again. But it is still hard to get rid of them because they are in different life cycles, sometimes even in the soil. I don’t see any mature ones flying around which is odd. Only the leaves and eggs, which the good bugs will eat. So I’m hoping they will help. But it’s such a pain because very summer I get another infestation because they come from the outside when the windows are open, etc. I don’t know how to keep them away for good.
