    If even temporary drying of the earth in the flowerpot does not help, you need to replace the soil. Wrong time to transplant a plant? We'll have to use insecticides: "Agravertin", "Ak-taroy", "Aktellik", "Fito-verm" or others.

    Water the soil with an insecticide solution prepared (according to the instructions) as for spraying: 100 ml per 0,5-0,7-liter pot 2 times after 7 days. Or soil insecticides in granules ("Thunder-2", "Bazudin") are scattered in a thin layer on slightly damp ground, mixed with the top layer of soil and then watered thoroughly.

    After treating the soil with drugs, it is impossible to water the plants for 3-5 days, so as not to weaken the effect of the insecticide by reducing its concentration or washing it out of the soil coma.

    A good effect can be achieved by watering the soil with infusions of black or hot chili peppers. Pour 0,5 liters of boiling water over one teaspoon of ground pepper and cover the container with a towel. After cooling, the infusion is ready for watering, 150-200 ml per flowerpot. It is used with caution - it is dangerous for the eyes, mucous membranes and skin.

    I fed indoor tomatoes of the Balcony Miracle variety with a tea brew, but, apparently, did not close it deep enough, Drosophila flies appeared. Can they damage indoor plants? How to get rid of annoying tenants?

      - The development period of Drosophila flies from egg laying to the release of an adult insect: about 10 days at +25 deg .; about 20 days - at +18 deg. Insects feed on rotting fruits and vegetables, in which females lay eggs (up to 400 pieces per life).
      They do not harm plants, but leave dirty marks on furniture and other surfaces.
      Therefore, as soon as you notice the flies, check the blanks, garlic and onions. Wash dishes immediately after eating.
      Remove all spoiled fruits and vegetables, as well as remove garbage in a timely manner.
