   Tiny pests attacking your house plants:  Take a tip from your
   dog and ring them with a flea collar; then cover the plants with
   plastic bags.  Remove in two days and the plants will be bug
   free.
   
   From Heloise:  To keep bugs away, mix garlic, hot peppers and
   water in the blender.  Pour into a spray bottle and apply to
   plants.  You also can put hot sauce on a cotton ball in a house
   plant pot to repel pests.
