Safer® Brand Houseplant Sticky Stakes

An insect infestation that has targeted your houseplants can be a sticky situation. Whiteflies, blackflies and midges are just a few of the many insects that can inflict plenty of damage on your plants in a short period of time. Using a chemical pesticide is one way to deal with the problem, but that requires applying toxic materials in or around your home that could be hazardous to children or pets. Safer® Brand Houseplant Sticky Stakes can provide an effective, organic alternative to synthetic pesticides.

Use Our Pesticide-Free Stick Stakes Indoors or Outdoors

Safer® Brand Houseplant Sticky Stakes are ideal for use indoors or outdoors in potted plants. Our sticky stakes for houseplants are an economical and convenient solution to the annoyances of whiteflies, fungus gnats, blackflies, thrips, fruit flies, midges and other flying insects. These houseplant sticky stakes contain no pesticides and are 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:

  1. Bend the flaps of the pointed end of the strips as shown. This will make it easier to insert the stake into the soil. Alternatively, you can hang the strips from the plant itself.
  2. Peel off the clear plastic sheets on either side of the plastic strip, exposing the adhesive.
  3. Place the strip into the soil at the base of the plant.
  4. To dispose of used strips, wrap in newspaper and dispose in the trash.

Safer® Brand is the leader in alternative lawn and garden products. Safer® Brand recognizes the growing demand by consumers for these products, offering a wide variety of natural and organic solutions for lawn, garden, landscape, flowers, houseplants, insects and more!

Gnat magnet By Jenn
These work great! I put them in several of my house plants I had seen gnats flying near by, and they started catching them right away. I love that they are pesticide free and have no odor whatsoever.

Works Great! By midwestlady
This product works great! However, as the company does not provide refill tape, I would suggest not wasting your money. It's too bad they don't, I'd buy many, many more.

Purchased these to combat fungus gnats that appeared in big numbers after repotting plants. The little black gnats are pesty and seem to land in any open glasses of fruit juice etc. you might have. After reading an article recommending another brand for gnat control I decided to purchase these after researching info on the Amazon site. The concept is quite simple, has no pesticides to endanger pets and isn't obtrusive in your plant pots. It helps control but not eliminate the gnats. Additionally limit watering of plants and allow top two inches of soil to remain dry to put a dent into the gnat population. Although it doesn't seem like you get a lot with these pest strips they are worth having and I have already reordered.

They are small, as other reviewers have noted. However, they work great on fungus gnats, which is why we got them.

Great Success By
All my African violets became infested this summer with an insect somewhat like a fruit fly and Sticky Stakes are catching them by the hundreds. I highly recommend this product for ease of use and effectiveness.

This item works a little too well in fact. The little sticky traps are covered so I actually need to order more! They work well because you are able to push them as far down into the pot as you need to unlike other traps you would just hang in the general area. They seem to be helping control our gnat problem though I would recommend a pesticide to go along with them. The sticky paper helps cut down on the number of flying adults but eggs still exist in the pot that need to be taken care of as well.

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.
