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.

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.
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.

Gets the mold gnatsMarch 14, 2010
Reviewer: Dave in Oxford
This winter there has been a virtual plague of mold gnats in our house plants. The Sticky Stakes have been the only way I've found to control them.They really work.
The only problem is they catch so many gnats that I have to keep changing them. That's the kind of problem I can put up with.

Q: My plant leaves look chewed! Do you know what type of insect might do that?

for this purpose. Such insects may include caterpillars, beetles, and grasshoppers,
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.
