I noticed an adult thrip on my pitcher plant that I have on my balcony, and upon further inspection I found a few tiny white bugs crawling inside one of the pitchers. Yuck. FYI, this plant is in the middle of all my CPs, in the same water tray -- two sarracenias and four flytraps.
Immediately after finding them, I ordered some insecticide and need oil, which should arrive in the next few days. But, I'm not sure how to apply them.
Do you spray insecticide (or neem oil) inside the pitchers? Or, just around them and in the soil? Would it be better just to cut off all the pitchers, since dormancy is just around the corner? Same question for flytraps.
Trying to read up and double check everything to avoid killing my plants accidentally. Here is a link for the insecticide I'm planning use (a bit limited since I'm unfamiliar with the types of insecticides available in France). The active ingredient is pyrethrin: https://www.amazon.fr/Solabiol-SOPOLYPA ... 082JCV416/
