I might be able to turn my #pest problem into some #sciencewithgreg. I have a microscope that I can hook up to my computer and take images. Time to try and get some close ups of #scale #thrips and #spidermites.
Oh and I noticed some #fungusgnats today too.
I’m interested in up close and personal with scale since they nearly overtook my sago palm but I neem oiled them to death πŸ’€
@AntiochHouse I'm about to do a full assault and treat all 70+ plants with spray and systemic. They gotta go.

I'm also most excited about the scale close ups because they are SO weird and gross.
@tattedscientist I’m still struggling with them on my poor sago they are controlled on the main plant but they are going after the sago pups. I hate them so much πŸ˜‘πŸ˜πŸ˜‚
@AntiochHouse They're awful! They spread from my oncidium orchid to one of my Swiss cheese plants so now it's WAR.
I wanna see that!!! We need details so we can battle them properly! πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ˜–
YES!! That's such a great idea!! You can help us identify all those little buggers!
Ooh, that sounds awesome! Bring it on!… πŸ€“
I highly support this #ScienceWithGreg experiment! and I do NOT support pests. They are jerks. 😠 Looking forward to some close-ups though, nglπŸ€“
