I posted a while back about these tiny black bugs that are destroying my philodendron, but didn't get any responses (my own fault, didnt post pictures at first). Anyways,I bought a spray recommended by my local nursery (think its neem---smells HORRIBLE). About 3 weeks ago I dragged the philo onto the porch, washed it off, doused with neem. Then I did it again a couple days later.
Not only did this seem to do NOTHING to the bugs, now they've shown up on my orchids in another part of my house, and some of the herbs on my porch. How do I get rid of these darn things? I think they're thrips, they are tiny, black/white stripes, and I think they haves wings (so not mites, thank god). I can wash and spray the orchids easily, but my huge philodendron is difficult, as well as the problem of the spray stinking up my apartment.
Any suggestions will be GREATLY appreciated
