Examine cut flowers and new plants brought into the home to be sure they are free of pests.

Itís a good idea to isolate new plants for at least a month before you place them with other plants. During this time, you can watch the new plants and discover any infestations that develop.

Using sterilized soil for potting may prevent the development of infestations of such soil pests as springtails, psocids and earth worms.
