I have an Avacodo Tree that I planted about a year ago in a large pot (I live in an apartment...no where to plant it outside) with it being so young I only just introduced it to the outdoors this past spring, and after an oddly chilled night it suffered burns from the cold and almost died. I nursed it and put it back outside when I was sure it would stay warm for the summer, and now that winter is upon us again I brought it inside last night. Well, come to find out it is infested with Sowbugs...(for those of you who don't know what this bug is, go to this website: http://insected.arizona.edu/isoinfo.htm)
My question to you ladies is...how do I make them go away? I have many houseplants, and I do not want the bugs migrating to them. But I also do not want to leave my tree outside for much longer for fear of the cold.
So, what can I use that is safe for my tree that will rid me of the damn Sowbugs?
This site basically says controll the moisture level or no matter what chemical you use they will keep coming back.
