Plants in pest control
- Sticky board trap
To make your own sticky trap, spread petroleum jelly or used motor oil on yellow painted plywood, 6 cm x 15 cm in size or up. Place traps near the plants but far away enough to prevent the leaves from sticking to the board. Traps when
hung should be positioned 61 cm zone above the plants (Olkowski; Daar; Olkowski, 1991).
- Trim and remove infested plant parts.
- Soap spray
- Horticultural oil
Avoid using horticulural oil for at least 1 month after using sulfur. The sulfur residues can trigger phytotoxic reactions (burnt leaves) on plants.
