A bit off topic, but I was growing my orchids next to a gardenia plant
(which seem to be bug magnets) and have what I've been thinking is mealy
bugs. Though cottony scale sounds like it could also be a candidate. I
looked on google and scale seems to move slowly and my "pets" move quickly
when disturbed. How do you tell the difference?

Hi, all,

I have been using Orthenex in my general insect controll spraying. I have
been buying and using the 16 Fl oz size, but have run out. I have looked
in
five different stores and can't find it.

So, what should I look for to use on my orchids (just over 100 plants)? I
have
spotted a couple of plants that have some cottony scale. I have used it
because it is systemic.


Thanks.

Gardenias are thrip magnets, for sure. Other things seem to like them as
well. I'm really debating cutting mine down. It would be tough, because
outside of orchids, gardenias are my favorite flowers.

Thrips move fast. To the naked eye, they look thin and black. They can take
out a Vanda spike faster than you can blink an eye.

Thanks for the info. Almost sacrilegious, but I might pick gardenia's over
orchids if I could get them to grow bug free (and keep cat away) in my 20'th
floor "garden". So far I've resorted to hand squashing (bugs not cats), but
afraid things might get out of hand. On a side note, is anyone posting to
the "other" orchid site (sorry I don't remember the gentleman's name who
graciously set it up)? I see new binaries but never text posts.

The other site has been slow, but it is in use. Since most (AFAIK) still can
access this group, there hasn't been a pressing need to use that one. But
the binaries group is a blessing.

Thanks again. I did wander over there and did see one new text post in over
four months. Hope I'm not permanently banned for placing gardenias over
orchids, just love the smell.

I love 'em too. My mother had them when she married dad, and I always made
sure I took her some when I went home to visit.

I definitely mix them. In fact, I have been known to mix Enstar, Merit, and

I seem to recall that Enstar (that "S" really ought to be a dollar sign) was
least expensive at some rose-related online store, but it's not cheap
anywhere.


rosecare.com?

I've been looking at them for herbicides to reign in a bermuda grass
infestation around the garden.

Scott bought out ortho and has been droping many of the ortho products in
favor of their non working products. the only othe one other than expensive
profesional products is Spectracide Immunox® Plus Insect & Disease Control
another sugestion is to go to home grown hardware stores thay may still
have some left on their shelves.
