How To Rid Philodendron x ‘Red Princess’ of Bugs

Ask The Expert: Can you tell me how to eliminate the bugs from my Philodendron x ‘Red Princess’ plant? Felicia

Flower Shop Network Plant Expert Reply: Depending on the type of bug (insect), there are many insecticides that you can use. If you are not sure which insect is attacking your Philodendron, start with a general purpose houseplant insecticide. Fertilome and Hi-yeild each have a ready to use general purpose insecticides that are safe for houseplants. Your local garden center/nursery will have these products.

If the bugs can be identified, a insect specific insecticide can be use, usually with better results. Your local garden center/nursery will be able to identify your insect – just take them a sample. Mealy bugs, scale insects and spider mites are usually the culprits.
