If you have purchased a new plant lately, there is always the possibility that the plant could carry insects into your home. Take a few moments now to look for any sign of sticky leaves. The sticky leaves come from the insects sucking juices out of the leaves and then excreting sugar onto the leaves.
If you treat soon for any insect infestation, you have a better chance at preventing the spread of insects to your other plants.
Well, that’s all for this week. I’ll talk to you again next week.
