Staghorn Fern Mount has bugs- how can I kill them?
I have a staghorn fern that I have nursed since plucking a section from a treasured plant when I left Florida and moved to Pennsylvania. I mounted it on a log and it now has 4 fronds after several years of being outdoors on a fence and indoors in a sunny window. The log is infested with termites or ants, resulting in constantly dropping sawdust or excrement. Is there a way to kill the bugs without killing the plant?
