So, I found a couple of green stink bugs on my cherry tomatoes that are just starting to produce fruit! Overall my plant looks healthy, so how do I get rid of them and prevent them from damaging my plant? I am new to gardening and have no idea how to manage pests so any advice would be appreciated! I also have carrots, pole beans, radishes, onions, and cucumbers, and would like to protect these as well! What should I do? Oh and I live in Hawaii if that helps. Thanks!!!!

Sorry there have been no responses. The best way I've handled these is to watch the plants closely.

I keep a cup of soapy water handy and when these bug are discovered, I drop them in the cup to swim in their own misery.

It just takes being vigilant which I'd bet you are because you noticed them already.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
