Flea Collar As Insecticide

In the past, when there would be larger house plants that would be 
awkward to spray I would set them on a large garbage bag, cut a few 
inches off a flea collar and somehow attach it to the plant (rubber 
band, punch a small hole with a nail and use twist tie, etc.) Pull the 
garbage bag up over the plant and tie securely closed. Leave for 24 to 
48 hours in a shady place. Seemed to take care of a variety of obnoxious 
insects. No idea what's in flea collars these days, as I use Frontline 
on the indoor / outdoor cat (whom I am trying to convert to indoor only, 
with decreasing success as we edge towards Spring.)
