Safer® Brand Houseplant Sticky Stakes
Safer® Brand Houseplant Sticky Stakes are ideal for use indoors or outdoors in potted plants. Sticky Stakes are an economical and convenient solution to the annoyances of whiteflies, fungus gnats, blackflies, thrips, fruit flies, midges and other flying insects. This natural pest control trap contains no pesticides and is fully disposable.
The yellow color of the trap as well as the glue will attract the insects. Shake the plant gently and insects hidden on the leaves will fly to the traps.
Directions for Use:
- Bend the flaps of the pointed end of the strips as shown. This will make it easier to inset the stake into the soil. Alternatively, you can hang the strips from the plant itself.
- Peel off the clear plastic sheets on either side of the plastic strip, exposing the adhesive.
- Place the strip into the soil at the base of the plant.
- To dispose of used strips, wrap in newspaper and dispose in the trash.

Houseplant Pest Control - FAQs
Q: My plant leaves look chewed! Do you know what type of insect might do that?
A: Insects that have the ability to chew plants must have special cutters in their mouths for this purpose. Such insects may include caterpillars, beetles, and grasshoppers, for example.
Q: Can aphids or other insect pests spread viruses from one plant to another?
A: Yes, many insect pests can transmit a virus from one plant to another. Pumpkins, potatoes, lettuce, melons, cucumbers, beans and beets are just some of the vegetable plants that can be affected.
Q: How do I know if my plant is being attacked by an insect or a disease?
A: If it’s an insect, the plant may have holes in its leaves. Turn the leaves over and you may see the insects themselves clustered on the underside of the leaves. You may also see and feel a sticky substance if it’s an insect because the insect will leave a secretion on the plant.
Q: Is a spider mite an insect or is it actually a spider?
A: Spider mites belong to a class called arachnids, to which spiders also belong. They are not actually insects. To find out more about these tiny pests, see our information in All About Spider Mites.
