House Plants Have Brown Spots Should They Be Treated For Four-Lined Bugs

Question From: D. Witt - Grosse Pointe, Michigan, United States
Q: The brown spots on these three different plants around my house? I had asked before about the mint. Your reply stated it was the "four lined bug". Also that AzaMax could or should be used to eliminate this problem.

A: Look at your plants. If the new growth is free of spots, the bugs have laid their eggs and died, so don't bother spraying. Four-lined bugs feed on many herbaceous plants. The larvae hatch out in May. That's the time to spray. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
