Keeping Those Spring Bouquets Beautiful
We love to see flowers as a part of our home decor. Most especially this spring when flowers are all in bloom. Flowers are the ideal way to show your love, but as much as humans love flowers, so do lots of unwanted pests. With that in mind it’s important to ensure your home is free from the pests that love your beloved’s favorite flowers by calling on the experts at Preferred Pest Control. But first, you need to know what flowers those pests love. Here’s a simple overview to help.
They are the most popular go-to flowers. As they say, you can never go wrong with roses. They signifying deep emotions including love, desire, longing, and devotion. A very popular flower among the insect crowd as well, roses are loved by aphids, mites, nematodes, bees, beetles, caterpillars, slugs, and thrips.
Carnations are a popular choice for bouquets and is often the flower of choice. Red carnations symbolize love and admiration while white demonstrates feelings of pure love. The beautiful ruffles of the carnation are also beloved by aphids, nematodes, caterpillars, weevils, mites, and more.
While a classic representation of joy and purity, is also known to symbolize secret love. Of course, with its sweet aroma, a number pests secretly love gardenias as well – including aphids, lady bugs, mealybugs, and many more.
Daisies feature a variety of color options. They carry a message of pure, loyal love. In the insect world, aphids, spider mites, thrips, whiteflies, leafminers, nematodes, and others are quite fond of daisy destruction.
Sunflowers are popular additions to bouquets, representing adoration and dedicated love. This bold, beauty attracts a plethora of insects as well including spider mites, weevils, thrips, aphids, caterpillars, leafhoppers, and more.
Historically, tulips have symbolized a beautiful declaration of perfect love. Spider mites, bulb flies, aphids, caterpillars, snails, slugs, and more would love to help themselves to your beloved’s wonderful tulips. Not to mention its vivid color would give every room a dash of color pop.
Irises are bold and striking and a centerpiece favorite. Blue irises represent hope and faithfulness, while yellow speaks of passion, and white promises pure love. This bloom is also a favorite of aphids, bulb flies, spider mites, caterpillars, whiteflies, beetles, snails, slugs, and more.
