    Pest: Powdery Mildew

    Thanks for the info! Powdery mildew is caused by high humidity, plant overcrowding, and poor air circulation. One may try these ways to deal with it: - Apple Cider Vinegar with one gallon of water. - Mix 1 tablespoon baking soda, 2 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil and one-gallon water. Shake well then add 1/2 teaspoon of Castile soap. Shake the container as you spray your plants to keep the oil and water from separating. - Milk can also be used as a preventative measure as it changes the pH level of the surface of the plant leaves and prevents mildew from adhering to them. This would help for sure but if you are having some problem dealing with it consult exterminator NJ professionals for suggesting other remedies.

    Pest: Springtails

    Springtails usually group together in large numbers on driveways, backyards, and mud puddle surfaces. They can enter the home through moist and damp areas such as cellars, bathrooms, and kitchens. They can even pop up near drains, leaking water pipes, sinks, and in the soil of overwatered house plants. They usually appear in the spring and early summer. To get rid of springtails, take steps to improve ventilation and increase drying. Removing piles of wet leaves or other moist organic clumps will help to upset their breeding grounds. Springtails are not harmful to humans at all, other than the annoyances they cause by showing up at your home. But it is always better to take the prevention steps to avoid any future major trouble. Consulting exterminator NJ like professionals are also the major aspect that may be considered.
