Spider mites and mealybugs can cause them to get infected. These bugs like sucking the plant’s sap, producing little lesions that weaken it and cause the leaves to fall off.”Kalyan Krishna Nandi, Teacher, Bio Science, Krishnapur Adarsha Vidyamandir,Kolkata

How do bugs get into your home?
- Door Open,It is not hard for pests to find the right environment for breeding. Open doors and windows are the ideal entryways for pests.
- Bringing fresh plants into the house – Your other houseplants are at risk when you buy new plants from the gardening center. Without your knowledge, bugs may have already placed eggs on the leaves or in the soil of young plants.
- Potting soil – Potting soil is full with bugs and their eggs. As a result, to limit the possibility of insect infestation, always purchase high-quality soil.
- Fresh produce or cut flowers — Bugs might be found in the vegetables or flowers you purchase.
- Bugs may also come inside if you bring a plant in from the outside when the weather becomes cooler.
Why do my houseplants seem to have bugs?
ndoor plants can be just as prone to bugs and pests as outdoor plants.
In fact, indoor plants can have more bugs than those outside your home..
…since you don’t have the assistance of insects or ladybugs to control bug infestations.
Plants that go into a dormant phase during the cooler months are more vulnerable to pests.
This is the time when plants cease to grow. Houseplants are naturally weaker during this time.
The other reason why indoor plants are more susceptible to pests in the winter months is that the temperature and room conditions are just right.
During mid-winter your home has less humidity and you may have been heating your home.
Add warm room temperatures to little air circulation and you’ve got just the perfect environment for bugs to thrive.
What Attracts Bugs to Snake Plants?
Although snake plants are easy to grow, they do not tend to attract insects…
…but exposure to cold and excessive watering can cause problems.
They can also become infested with spider mites and mealybugs.
Those pests tend to suck the sap from the plants, causing small wounds that weaken the leaves, resulting in their shedding.
Largely infested plants should be discarded because they are unsalvageable.
Getting rid of them involves a lot of time and effort, and there is a risk of spreading disease to nearby plants.
You can wash off mealybugs with alcohol if there is a small infestation.
It is an effective method to control the problem.
Spider mites, on the other hand, can be removed from plants by washing them and increasing the humidity around them.
Biological and insecticidal control can also be used to get rid of the pests.
It is advised that you take action as soon as possible because the pests multiply at high speed.
Also, they can move from one plant to another in a matter of seconds.
If you don’t take steps to control them, it can lead to the infecting and killing of all your indoor house plants.
There is the rare problem of spider mites and mealybugs…
…but snake plants have the excellent property of repelling insects.
Most plants attract insects because of their toxic chemical saponin, which is toxic to mosquitoes.
Regardless of whether you reside in an area where there are many mosquitoes…
…a snake plant will protect you from their stings and the diseases they carry.
Pound one next to your bed to reap its many benefits.
Natural is always better.
If you uncover signs of pests on your houseplants, act fast to prevent them from killing the plants or infecting other plants in your home.
Natural approaches are always the best when it comes to getting rid of pests.
For treating and managing pests, there are a number of effective home treatments.
What makes natural better? Applying harmful chemicals to your plants can pose a health risk for your family.
This is why you should never use harsh chemicals indoors.
Another reason why natural is preferable is that many houseplants develop resistance to chemical pesticides and develop tolerance to them.
So, not only are you utilizing chemicals that are potentially dangerous to you and your family, but these chemicals may also be ineffective in terms of pest management.
Let me offer some of my natural pesticide recommendations to help you get rid of pests from your plants.
Using Homemade Bug Spray
Use these homemade bug sprays on a variety of houseplants.
They’re much safer than using chemical bug sprays in your home.
Before using one of these sprays on any houseplant, do a test on the leaves and wait for two to three days.
If the plant is happy after that period, then go ahead and spray the whole plant.
The use of natural bug sprays should be followed by the precautionary principle…
…of keeping plants from direct sunlight and heat.
The sun and heat, as well as the spray, can cause leaves to burn.
Baby Shampoo Bug Spray
Make a spray with baby shampoo to get rid of some bugs, such as aphids and whiteflies.
Fill a four-ounce spray bottle halfway with water and one spoonful of baby shampoo.
Spray afflicted plants twice a day.
In other words, I cover the bugs for a few hours with the spray…
…and rinse the plant with clear water, hoping to get rid of them.
This spray does not work well on plants that have bristly leaves or leaves with a wax coating.
