๐Ÿšจโš ๏ธ PEST PROBLEM โš ๏ธ๐Ÿšจ
Y'all.... What the heck.
I went and watered my Syngonium Albo and noticed a disgusting pesty bug crawling on the new unfurled leaf! I don't have a picture of said pest because I absolutely freaked and hastily got the Neem Oil spray out and went to town.

It was small and yellowish? light colored?

I'm upset because now I'm pretty sure the rest of my jungle is now infected.

๐Ÿ˜ฐ

Is there like a magic potion y'all know that I don't know of that'll eradicate all them from everything in one go or am I just reaching far ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜‚

Sounds like it could be an aphid, but hard to be sure without a photo. Could you please try to get a photo if you see another one? Will be easier to suggest a way to combat it, as there are things that can tackle lots of pests, but nothing really eradicates every pest entirely
@foliagegirl If I see another I'll get a photo.
If it looks like this is aphids. I use neem oil spray. Good luck I just battled this devils
I have seen bugs like that in the dirt of my snake plant. I drenched with neem oil and cinnamon and I didnโ€™t see them for a while and last night I saw a few again. So sick!! I am probably going to just repot cuz I HATE BUGS ๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿ˜ฉ
Aphids can also be dark in colour too. This was on my caladium several months ago. I recently decimated a bad infestation of green aphids on one of my largest syngoniums with lacewing larvae. They did such an amazing job, so fast. No need for spraying either
It was smaller than an aphid.... Like the size of the ball of a pen... Or smaller.

This is my magic potion. I swear by it more than the happy happy houseplant food.
@sarahsalith I never saw that post! Thank you! Very informative.

I'm not sure what was on Motley the Syngonium... But I haven't seen it since I did a neem oil treatment.

Thanks y'all!
