These traps helped me get rid of a nasty little whitefly problem on my houseplants. I did use these traps indoors, so I’m not sure how effective they are when used outdoors.
The traps were great for trapping the adult whiteflies, thereby keeping them from multiplying further, but I also took some advice I found online and washed each of the infested plants with plenty of soapy water to get rid of eggs and larva that were stuck to the underside of the leaves. You have to really get in there and rub each leaf individually with soapy water and then rinse well, because the eggs that they lay are very sticky and you want to remove all of that stuff before they hatch. I used dishwashing detergent and even though it was a pain, I was able to get rid of those nasty bugs that were killing my plants.
So the traps didn’t singlehandedly solve my problem, but they absolutely helped. They do what they’re supposed to do, but I recommend a good washing of the plants if you’re serious about getting rid of these pests.
This package of 15 was a really good value. I assumed I would get 15 strips or whatever, but I got 15 large sticky traps that were more than enough to spread throughout the apartment around all of my plants, and I still have some left over, which hopefully I will not have to use. It was a really good deal for the price, and the traps arrived within a few days of ordering.
I tried all sorts of chemicals, to no avail. Take it from me, here’s a sure-fire way to get rid of them:
STEP 1: Purchase these traps TODAY. Once you have them, cut them into one-inch strips, peel apart to expose the sticky side and tuck them into the soil (sticky side facing the plant) around the perimeter inside each houseplant pot. Once gnats land on the sticky surface, they cannot get out. These are great because they continue to attract gnats even when wet or full (nasty). The gnats seem to land on them more in the early morning when the sun begins to come out.
STEP 2: Prepare a bio-control mixture (called 4-4-2) consisting of 2 cups water, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp oil, and either 2 drops of any mouthwash or tea-tree oil (gnats hate the smell of these). Mix well in any rinsed out spray bottle. Add 1/2 tsp dish washing liquid and gently mix. This mixture will not harm your houseplants and will also kill mites and other houseplant pests.
STEP 3: Spray the soil of all your houseplants with this mixture for 2 weeks. This will kill all the gnats and their larvae. You’ll actually see the gnats come out of the soil and try to hang out around the flower pot when you spray. You may want to crush them with a paper towel so they don’t fly around your house or try to move to your other plants. Spray daily and within the week they’ll be gone. But keep spraying to kill the larvae, which is what makes this pest so insidious. It seems like a never-ending cycle, but the 4-4-2 spray and the sticky traps end all that.
