MEALYBUGS

PLANT DAMAGE
Distorted leaves, weak plants, a large infestation can carry away a plant.

INSECT APPEARANCE
Colonies of mealybugs can look like a cottony mass. Grab a magnifying glass and you will be able to see the puffy, slow-moving culprits.

TREATING LIGHT INFESTATION
Try to pick them off by hand on a daily basis, and you might just get the upper hand. But you will have to be vigilant in your pursuit of these bugs.

BIOLOGICAL WARFARE
