The plant that my husband and son bought me for my birthday has bugs. The bugs came from an infested basil plant my parents gave me. I am so sad. I have had it in the garage without water since Monday.
Tonight, I will water it with a hydrogen peroxide/water mix, in the hopes of killing all eggs and larvar in the first 2 inches of the soil. I hope to move my baby plant (Calla Lilies) back in the house tomorrow morning.
It is so sad. I had to move it out, though, before it infested the other plants, and I was already finding the little boogers just wandering the airwaves in the house. Ugh. I felt dirty from them, and they were super annoying.
The break in the heat is over-- we'll be back in the hundreds tomorrow. It was a nice stretch of about 5 days with humidity, but not extreme humidity. I've learned beggers can't be choosy in the NC summers.
