BEAT THE BUGS
Bringing the outside in with indoor plants is all well and good, but how do you avoid an insect invasion in your home?

TOP TIPS

1 Make sure to repot your house plants every 12–18 months.

2 Mulch the top of the pots with a bark chip or similar.

3 Don’t overwater.

4 Use products such as Eco Oil, PestOil and neem oil as directed.

5 Clean plants with a damp cloth to remove foliage pests.

Foliage around the house can be calming, detoxifying and aesthetically pleasing, but an outbreak of insects indoors could make it all more effort than it’s worth. Taking certain precautions, however, can ensure you won’t need to worry about that problem arising.
