: My mint plant seems to have stopped growing. I only see the leaves turning brown or being eaten up by something that I can't see. I tried using Schultz Bug spray but that seems to have no effect. How do I get rid of the infection?

Hi Amrita,

Just spraying with a bug spray and not knowing the 'enemy' won't be helpful. You first need to identify what the problem is. You need to inspect the plant closely to see if there are any bugs under the leaves or on the stems. If you find nothing there, then look in the soil and see if you find something there. You can then contact your local extension service for help. You don't say where you live, so here's a link to all the websites for the US.

Good luck,
