Hmmmmm, bug bombs ... ideal if I didn't have cats, and the room had doors...sigh.

Lee Anne, I'll surely let you know if it comes to that!

I think I need to get a gallon or so of rubbing alcohol to put into larger spray bottles than I have now. Maybe I'll use that for dunking (just joking!). I do like dunking because I can wash the little boogers off at the same time - I've used it many times just with detergent, didn't know that it really needs oil to work properly. Likely why it didn't work. My kitchen sink is big enough to do the dunking; but I do like your idea Carol of putting down old shower curtains (I'd thought of using a tarp, but they always get holes in them).

Back to BATS though; what I've been doing, is when the plant has sat sufficiently for the BATS to work, I drain off the excess into a large glass container (usually an old vase) - I have actually been using that run-off to treat the plants outside. I confess that I have at times used it on my clematises, and I will NEVER do that again, I promise. Spraying with soap and water should be enough to keep the bugs off of them.

Anyway, I'm here at work killing time because I missed my train and the next one is 33 minutes later. So I think I'll mosey on down to the station now and wait for the train so that I can get a good seat.

Bye for now.
