Re: [IGSROBIN] red crawlers


Andrew:

Where are they crawling and are they eating holes in the leaves?  Also have
you noticed any adverse effects on any of your plants from the Isotox?  I
sprayed my entire collection with wettable power Orthene two weeks ago and
no signs of toxic effects on anything.  I'll spray again tomorrow due to a
few mealy bugs here and there.  I want to get RID of those !@#@$@##@ bugs!
