Succulents

(Question)

Hello. I would like to know if I can use insecticide to prevent bugs on indoor succulents. I would like to use it before I get a bug problem, which I always do with houseplants. Also, do you know of a good insecticide for this purpose?
Thank you

Luckily, succulents are not prone to many insect pests, so there should be no need to use an insecticide to prevent occurrences.  You may find this Toronto Master Gardeners guide useful for specific guidance in dealing with the insect pests that may affect your indoor succulents:
