Dahlia Insects and Pest Control | Dahlia Care
Slugs, and Snails

After you have completed your planting,  there is notihing to do but wait until the dahlias grow. The most common pests are snails, and slugs. They will eat your tubers underground, as well as the new growth just above the soil. We use Sluggo, or the slug pellets that can be purchased at most home and garden stores.
 
Earwigs, Cucumber Beetles, Spider Mites

During the growing months, earwigs, cucumber beetles, spidermites, and other garden pests will thrive on the flowers, and foliage. We spray our dahlias with Orthenex a few times a year, since we do sell the flowers. Dahlia Insects and Pest Control | Dahlia Care
