Q: I have what appears to be small mite size insects <1mm on my indoor parsely and they are only on the parsely. They also excrete a sticky substance. Any suggestions on how to get rid of them without killing the plant?
Sounds like aphids. I use a product called Azamax. It is safe for use on edibles and will not kill the plant. Respray every 3 to 4 days until all signs of bugs are gone. Happy Yardening, Nancy
