The sale ends April 30th. ALL POTS 20% OFF PESTS: Aphids (green, yellow, black, sometimes orange & even woolly) damage plants by sucking essential juices from them. Many times aphids are accompanied by their favorite sidekicks, whitefly. Rid yourself of these pests by 1st giving plants a forceful blast with your garden hose. Then use ladybugs from Orcon to finish the job! Aphids are ladybugs’ favorite food & they’ll polish off whitefly as well. They find mites, thrips, and scale tasty too! Another non-toxic way to stay on top of whitefly is to hang Safer Sticky Whitefly traps. They also attract leaf miners, thrips, gnats & fruit flies. *Two other effective, nontoxic alternatives for aphid & whitefly eradication (as well as many other pests) are Insecticidal Soap & Dr. Earth Insect Sprays. *Continue checking for slugs & snails. We recommend SLUGGO a unique blend of iron phosphate & bait additives that enrich the soil as it effectively rids your garden of slugs & snails. AND it’s non-toxic, kid & pet friendly! For additional organic pest protection, use SLUGGO Plus 2.5# or Bonide Bug & Snail 1#, for earwigs, sowbugs, & cutworms. Both are 20% off through April 30. As we celebrate our 9th year in business, we want to thank all of you for your continued support. WE WOULD NOT BE HERE WITHOUT YOU!
