You might try applying imidacloprid to the roots in granular form.  It has such a low mammalian toxicity that the lethal dose for a rat has not been discovered.  It is marketed as Merit and Marathon, among others.  John.

Subject: [Aroid-l] Little black bugs eating Alocasias

 



Michael Pascall,


Population explosion of these things . They seem to be eating holes in the plants , a nearby Costus is severly affected . All the new growth in the rainforest after the recent Cyclone has upset the natural balance . I am always hesitant to spray , and when I do only use pyretherum or similar contact spray .

 


Listen now! New music from the Rogue Traders.
