Recently, I have been getting really bad lice, up the stalk of the flowering Sundews.

These lice go onto my VFTs and onto other Sundews. Hate them they have brought some plants to their knees before.

I have always sprayed the plant with soapy water to get rid of them, but seems to do a lot of harm to the plant (especially Sundews).

Anybody have any other ways of getting rid, or preventing it happening in the first place?

Thanks

Could these lice be aphids? If so, I have a product called Rose Clear which kills off things like aphids and it's safe to use on the VFT's

Yeah that's the one!! Ladybirds eat them, but can't seem to find any at the moment!!

Also you can drown them apparently. I know VFTs are ok underwater temporarily, how do Sundews cope?
