Unknown housplant bugs - Parthenothrips dracaenae
Mid/Southern Vancouver Island, BC CANADA, British Columbia, Canada
April 1, 2010
I have these houseplant pests (very small) that I can not identify nor get rid of. They like to live on and destroy my Hawaiian Ti plant and my palm. They breed and thrive on both sides of the leaves. I have had these plants for many, many years and the bugs only appeared a couple of years ago (are the bugs new to Vancouver Island?). I have been unable to get rid of them. I live on Mid/Southern Vancouver Island, BC Canada.
