The Wooly Aphid ... I kid you not. Just like their green cousins except, well, wooly. They are known to come out in the fall, in the southeastern US. Not known to me! Ugh! Looks like I have a date with Bayer 3-in-1 in my future.
This has been a @!##@ of a year for plant problems. Cut worms, rhizome rot, aphids, scale, thrieps, and mealy bugs. And all of my fall produced pitchers have gotten indigestion and turned brown or had holes chewed through them. I just found a small pitcher plant where a cut worm ate the growth point. And now Wooly Aphids! The next thing you know I will have racoons picking the lock to my chicken coop to steal Venus Flytraps to sell to squirrels on the black market.
