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, 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 leads the alternative lawn and garden products industry, offering many solutions that are compliant with organic gardening standards. Safer® Brand recognizes this growing demand by consumers and offers a wide variety of products for lawns, gardens, landscapes, flowers, houseplants, insects and more!

The item works very well, however it would be wonderful if you could buy the sticky strips as a separate item.

Great product By BluesJunky

I bought these traps for fungus gnats in the soil of houseplants, and am very pleased with the results. I never knew I had that many gnats! The traps just get coated with them. Even caught a couple big house flies as a bonus. I've bought these twice now, and will buy again when needed. Great product.

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.

Q.I am looking for organic certified sticky stiks. I see the Safer version is. Are the Safer's Sticky Stiks sold in Canada natural as well?

The Canadian Sticky Stiks are not certified.

Q.Do you sell just the sticky yellow paper? I have purchased 2 packages of the sticky stakes, and they have worked really well, but I don't want to keep accumulating stakes in order to trap bugs. I just need more of the paper.

Replacement sticky strips are not available for separate purchase.

Q.can I buy this product in the UK?

At this time, this product is available for purchase in the United States and Canada.

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.
