How to get rid of lice in flower pots
There is a lot of purchased products, which are designed to help us destroy these insects, but I manage without them. My method is quite simple and consists of only three steps:
Step 1. target plants
First of all, it is necessary to process the green part of the plant. To do this, the best approach is not a strong solution of tar soap. Thoroughly wash all the branches and leaves.
If the hand is no tar soaps, you can use the utility.
Step 2. farm
Now it is necessary to treat the soil. This can be done with a weak solution of potassium permanganate, and garlic extract.
Prepare the infusion is not difficult. It is necessary to take 4 cloves garlic, finely chop them and fill with 1.5 liters of clean water. The infusion is ready after four days at room temperature.
Step 3. anchoring result
To consolidate the results, the soil is necessary to sprinkle wood ash. Best suited ash birch and pine.
What to do in a pinch?
If midges too much to cope with them does not work, do not waste my time. Just replace all the soil and a pot treated with a solution of potassium permanganate. This ensures the destruction of the larvae - the main cause of the midges. Before planting the plants in clean soil, it must be treated with a soap solution.
This simple way to help get rid of lice and "give a break" your plants.
