I start seeds indoors. This year most of my flower seeds have not germinated, and the few that do germinate have tended to grow about 1" or so and then the leaves start to brown at the edges and eventually die, and then the entire plant is dead. I have lost all my salvia, all my nemesia, all my silene ... My peppers, which are about 8" tall, have had their uppermost leaves turn all crinkled and small, the lower leaves have turned yellow. The source of the problem appears to be small flying insects which originated who knows where. The insects look like tiny mosquitoes - about 1/8" long - when caught on yellow sticky paper. They do not look anything like whiteflies. They do not sting, and there is in any event no place nearby where mosquitoes would breed. They are not attracted in the slightest to the paper. They do not appear to be harmed by insecticial soap. They are far too small for me to post any pictures, but does this description ring any bells with anyone?
