They got on my tomatoes last year. You can also spray with insecticidal soap and it might help to plant alliums (onions and garlic) and marigolds nearby as they produce substances that many pests don't like.

Aargh, my phone hopped in the toilet. It's sitting in a plastic container of uncooked rice, in an attempt to dry it. At least it was before I sat down.

Does anyone know if brown rice works of if I should dash out and buy some white rice?

This makes sense: http://www.popularmechanics.com/tech...o/tips/4269047

Any rice should work. Did you take the battery out?

I knew there was a reason I always save those antidessicant packets.

Bummer! I don't know for sure, but I would think it would work the same. They're both dry so they would absorb the moisture.

Yup, took out the battery and the SIM card. They are in the plastic container, buried in the rice too.

Thanks for the link. I already read that one.

That's what I'm hoping. I have a friend who uses moisture sensitive hearing aids and he puts them in brown rice over night and hasn't had any problems with moisture since.

Mine fell in Horse's water bucket and never recovered. Fortunately it was cheap pay-as-you-go one as I have a history with lost and trodden on mobile phones.
