Common pests to look out for:

Mealy bugs
Probably the most common pest of houseplants, mealy bugs are sap-sucking insect that look like patches of white cotton wool. They are difficult to eradicate as they often hide in relatively inaccessible places, but our spray will help get them under control quickly.

Red spider mites
It’s difficult to see these sap-sucking pests by eye, but their damage is unmistakable. The upper sides of leaves will become mottled, before they shrivel up and die – fine webbing is sometimes visible.. They like hot, dry conditions so mist plants regularly to raise humidity.

Scale insects
Scale insects are sap-sucking creatures that look like tiny brown limpets. Over time, they form large colonies and will weaken their host. They usually appear on stems and under leaves.

How to use

Shake the bottle well, before thoroughly spraying the upper and lower surfaces of all leaves. To keep pests at bay, do so once a week. If you have active pests then spray every three days for two weeks, making sure to spray the insects directly. For best effect, continue to spray once a week as this formula will help to strengthen your houseplant back to good health.
