Care Guide

Good Pest and Disease Resistance

Bay plants can suffer from Bay Suckers, small white insects usually found on the underside of leaves, and Scale Insects, small yellow insects also usually found on the underside of leaves. If the infestation is small you can pick the bugs off by hand. You can also plant companion plants, such as Marigolds, that will attract predatory insects such as ladybirds that will eat the pests. Usually, however, the infestations are not lethal and will subside with minor control.MORE
