When I bring my houseplants into the house at the end of summer, they seem to sprout bugs, whereas they were bug-free outside. What’s up?
The likely explanation is that outside your bugs were getting eating up by other bugs or predators. Outdoors, you’ve got lacewings, spiders, wasps, or beetles helping you out. Since the common household insects like aphids, mealybugs and mites reproduce so well, all you need is a few of them remaining on your leaves when you bring the plants indoors and it won’t take long for a colony to thrive.
