Prevent Pests

It is easier to prevent pests on plants than it is to get rid of them after they've taken hold. To prevent pests on indoor plants, you should:

1. Freeze potting soil before using it. This will help kill pests that hatch when the soil warms up.

2. Wash plants that have been outside over the summer with insecticidal soap to remove any pests.

3. Check plants at least once a month for signs of pests and treat them immediately.
