Sticky Trap

A sticky card trap with captured pests.

The recent freeze warnings triggered bringing my outside houseplants, cacti, and other succulents inside for the winter. This act also can bring unwanted hitchhiking pests inside.

A few days before coming inside, I usually give plants a close examination for visible critters such as mealybugs, aphids or scale that like to hide out under leaves or in leaf-stem intersections.
