We recommend bifenthrin (hmm, spelling) aka Talstar, which is required by
our Department of Agriculture when exporting plants within and out of the
state of Florida; and clear restriction to AZ, CA, HI and LA.  It is gentle
enough to spray delicate young foliage, yes aroids; yet strong enough for
even the nastiest of pests.

Those restricted states are no longer accepting FEES for exceptions for
many, primarily the noxious species list, but not exclusively.  They are
virtually restricting all plant / plant parts from movement into their
states; but we can all see they do not restrict what they export.  Hmm.  As
mentioned we know what the asian scale and other pests have done through
careless importation / exportation; we owe it to our plant recipients and
ourselves to impose proper respect and plant etiquette.

Good luck; if that does not work, there are other solutions.

Does anyone have thoughts on carnivorous plants in the
garden to deal with ants? I have at least 10 colonies
in various locations in my pots. They get a little
testy when I water. I always walk away from the garden
felling like I am covered in them. I would like to try
a few Sarracenias in various locations to seee if the
ants would be attracted to them at all. 
If not, the pitchers make great cut foliage in
