Your cat, your dog, your kids, your tools (pruners, loppers, gloves), the wind, your shoes, your clothes, and other bugs like flies, bees, beetles, moths, etc. Also any plants or pots or soil that you bring in there. Mainly new plants. Need to quarantine any new plants, and I spray any and all new plants and my garden tools that have been outside with Neem oil or Talstar before using inside.
If you look on YouTube at commercial rowing facilities, you will see that they tend to wear protective garments to keep any bugs from coming off your clothes and onto the plants. It also keeps internal transference down.
