Invasion of the slugs
Ever brought home a plant you loved only to find it half gone the next day? Slugs have huge appetites and will eat your plant down to nothing. It only takes one to lay hundreds of eggs and spread to nearby plants. So, how do you kill the bugs without killing the plant? One of the best solutions I have found is to spay those little pests with full strength rubbing alcohol. Rubbing alcohol will also take care of mealy bug and aphids. Don't forget about ants. Ants will place aphids on your lovelies to harvest those nasty sticky secretions they love.
