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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They stick like nothing else! I've been using these for about a month and have had great results. These sticky tabs catch EVERYTHING! I've caught a spider and a few files in addition to gnats. I used to be swatting them from my face when I read on my tablet in bed at night. Now there are maybe 2 a week. The tabs are easy to use and easy to dispose of. I've already ordered more for my kitchen plants and the ones at my office.

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.
