Well, you tried. That's the scientific approach. Tough little buggers, eh?

Since the neighbor cut down a lot of the Tree of Heaven next door, which I had suspected of harboring the millipedes, I have seen no sign of millipedes this past winter. I hope it continues that way.

Aphids are another story...

Found a millipede infestation in one pot of MOSO. *sigh* I suspect they came in with the flooding in the basement due to all the rain last week. I hope this isn't the start of a trend. :(

I don't recall having a problem with millipedes last year, but they are back with a vengance this year. I'm trying a different approach, a small baited cup pushed into the soil so the millipedes can fall in, but can't climb out. For the bait I am trying papaya. If that doesn't work I will try apple.

Are these in the pots that you've just brought into the house?

Both pots which had the outbreak had been inside for a while. One had never been outside.

I also discovered an aphid outbreak yesterday. It does not bode well for this Winter. :(

Last year I had termites come out of one pot (one of my robusta divisions -- that plant was mostly dead wood).

Luckily they hadn't gotten off of the sweater box lid I had the pots on yet.
