Name: Lori
Dallas, Tx
Stormy - no dead ones. I left them alone (didn't kill any) for about 3 days and they just got more and more and more, none died. I had several dozen at one point. I have been controlling them daily since and still get up to a dozen or so a day. They usually don't bother me but I am worried that they are laying eggs and have larvae that are hurting the plants. Most (90%+) of them hang out in the top 1/4 - 1/3 of the windows that the plants are in. Sometimes they will come down lower and land but usually they are landed on that upper section of the window. I didn't even know I had them for awhile... I saw one, and killed it, then I saw a couple more, killed those. Then a few days went by and I saw another, I tried to kill it but it walked up behind the blinds, so I opened the blinds and there were an amazing number! Opened the other blinds and had quite a few there, as well!
