I have some potted baby trees on my deck because we have no yard... unfortunately I think the soil may have been contaminated with thripps. They're in desperate need of repotting, and I'll be buying new soil for that, but I don't really want to bring the thripps into the new soil. There are not a ton of ways to get rid of thripps that aren't going to kill something else I want around, but my father-in-law, who has successfully grown all kinds of things in all kinds of places, had two suggestions:
1. They're in pots which aren't objectively huge, so submerge them to a couple inches above the surface of the soil in water for 5 minutes or so. He says it doesn't much matter what kind of bug you've got, they're coming to the surface if they're under water. Then skim the surface, drain the pot of water, and keep an eye on the soil for a bit. I'd worry more about rot but frankly these suckers aren't going to stay wet, it's Vegas in August and nothing
stays wet for long. It's entirely possible they could use a decent soak.
2. Neem oil. I'm not sure exactly how to use it or where to find it yet, but it looks okay for bees and other nice things I want. None of which are out right now anyway because it's too damn hot. Going outside is like walking into Satan's fart trail.
Are either of these ideas even a little bit good? I probably have a matter of days to get this repotting done before one of the trees reaches a point of no return and I know I have to do everything more or less at once to prevent the re-spread of these things.
And it seems like all is dying, and would leave the world to mourn
