Fight back against pests and protect your houseplant collection!  When bringing home a new plant it is best to isolate it from your other plants for a few weeks and keep a close eye for signs of pests. To protect your plants, familiarize yourself with common houseplant insects and learn how to identify them.

Before applying treatments, it is beneficial to remove as many of the insects as you can, this will make the treatments more effective. There are several different sprays you can buy, sure to read the label and follow application directions, to ensure you use the product in the best way for your pest.

A home remedy that can work for most pests is a soapy water mixture of one tablespoon of dish soap, one tablespoon of rubbing alcohol with one liter of water. Spray your plant down with this mixture, leave it for up to 6 hours and then wash it off. This mixture may not work for all pests and may need multiple applications a few weeks apart.

Aphids love hot areas, and can reproduce asexually, meaning their populations can expand very quickly unchecked. They can come in a variety of colours and are most identifiable by their cornicles (tail pipes) that come off their back end.

Spider Mites are very small and usually go undetected for a long time. If your plants have a lot of spider webs be sure to check for the little mites, but the webs could also be from non-harmful spiders. The most common house mite is the two spotted spider mite, they are yellowish with two black spots.

Thrips are another small insect, with a long slender body shape. Most are 1mm in length. These insects cause physical damage to the plant they feed on, it can cause discoloration or malformed leaves.

Mealybugs can be very hard to get rid of and will take multiple checks and treatments. These insects are soft, white and often fluffy. They don’t tend to move very far during their life span but be sure to check and isolate surrounding plants once one is found.

 Scale are almost impossible to remove. You can try cutting off visibility infected areas, thoroughly washing the entire plant and treating it with horticultural oil. However, it is impossible to know if all the immature scale are removed because they may take months to grow big enough to see them. If they are not removed, you risk them spreading to other plants during the long treatment period. Ultimately, we recommend composting plants with scale to avoid other plants from being infected.

Fungus gnats and fruit flies do not harm your plants. These insects can be signs of overwatering or poor drainage because they thrive in oversaturated soil. To help prevent water logged soil you can repot the plant into well draining soil and reduce watering if your plant allows it. Nematodes are also an effective treatment against fungus gnats and fruit flies. Organic products, like Nema Globe’s Pot Poppers, release beneficial nematodes to control insects without chemicals. Alternative solutions like mosquito dunks and yellow sticky sheets are also effective and more commonly found.

Although almost invisible to the naked eye, we use beneficial, predatory insects and mites to help maintain a stable ecosystem within our greenhouse.

Within our ecosystem we also have spiders, worms and the odd centipede. Please don’t confuse spiders with spider mites, they are very different. Spiders and centipedes are predatory creatures who eat insects and can help reduce the number of insects that threaten your plants. Worms are also good for your houseplants because they aerate and fertilize the soil.


As a pet owner it is important to familiarize yourself with toxic houseplants. Even though many toxic plants would have to be ingested in large quantities to have a serious effect, it is important to prevent possible harm to animals.

Sago palms and dieffenbachia can be severely toxic and should not be kept in a space with pets.

If you find that your pet is prone to chewing on houseplants, consider planting a ‘cat grass’ planter with oats, barley or even lawn seed, to safely satisfy their needs.
