All About Bugs
You can't manage what you don't monitor...
so we monitor a lot!
To best avoid infestations, we employ an integrated pest management (IPM) approach.
Our primary means of pest control and prevention is augmentation biocontrol. Beneficial insects are released on ALL new plants to help suppress thrips, spider mites, aphids, fungus gnats, etc. to the best of their (and our) ability.
The insects and food can look like this:
Our favorite generalist predator is the Chrysoperla rufilabris aka Green Lacewings. Others we use include Stratiolaelaps scimitus and Amblyseius cucumeris. Consider it an organic army fighting for you in your indoor jungle!
