Sticky Traps

whiteflies, fungus gnats, sticky trapsI find fungus gnats and whiteflies very annoying, don’t you? And especially inside a greenhouse.

A few years ago, I came across a product that helps cut decrease these two pests: Pot Stickers from GardensAlive. They sell a lot of natural products so I’m a repeat customer of theirs.

The Pot Stickers are butterfly-shaped traps with a sticky material on them. In the photo on their website, they show the trap stuck into the soil of a pot but I ended up hanging mine just above the plants in my little greenhouse just so it wouldn’t get stuck to everything.

The trap worked great, as you can see in my photo, and that was just after a day or two of putting it in place. It at least made me feel like I was making a dent in those annoying insects!

You can read the product details in the link above. They come in packages of 10 for $14.99.
