Are Houseplants Bringing Bugs into Your San Antonio Home?
Are houseplants bringing bugs into your home a worry for you? We all know that without plants, life on our planet would most likely not exist. That is why so many people choose to fill their homes with plants. They help purify the air and the right house plants can look really nice. Keeping house plants in pristine conditions can be a little bit of a challenge and there are times when houseplants may introduce some unwanted pests. Once these pests take hold of your home, they can be really difficult to control without killing off your garden of house plants. Here are a few of the more common pests you may find when you start bringing plants into your home.
No one likes spiders in their home but coming home with some new houseplants from the local nursery might be enough to give anyone a mild case of arachnophobia. That’s right, those eight legged little creatures love hiding in plants. They eagerly wait for the right person to come along and give them a ride to what they consider to be nirvana; the inside of your home.
You can prevent this from happening by looking very closely at the plants before you bring them home. You may not like the idea of sticking your face in a plant to look for spiders, but it is better that you find them now instead of waking up to one crawling across your face.
Fungus gnats are really common in areas with a dry climate like San Antonio. You won’t notice them at first, but then one day you will notice a small flying insect buzzing around your face. You might not think much of it until this starts becoming a regular thing and the next thing you know, your entire house is overrun with these little flying pests.
This is one infestation that can be difficult to get rid of without getting rid of your plants because these little guys are coming from the soil in your plant containers. If you are over watering your plants, then these gnats will definitely be making an appearance in your home.
