Remedy for Mealybugs on Plants

The white powdery look you sometimes see on plants is mealy bugs that can infest plants after a lot of rain. Take a bowl and mix original Dawn soap and place it into a plastic hand held sprayer. The mix is 2 to 1 heavy on the soap; spray and let dry. If you have a really infested plant, rub the leaves with a soft cloth with this solution or dip into a bucket of solution and remove as much residue as possible. This is a natural solution smothering the scale or powder.

I just went to the garden store because I have mealybugs on my raspberry plants. I bought insecticidal soap. The owner said regular soap, such as Dawn, will kill the plant as well as the bugs.

You can also buy and protect mealybug's best ennemy : Cryptolaemus Montrouzieri, safe for the bees and safe for the plants. This black and orange tiny insect feeds on mealybugs.
