    Can anyone help me get rid of my mealy bug problem using organic methods? I have them in the soil, I am pretty sure I got it from sunland garden products natural and organic potting soil. The peat moss was probably the culprit. So watch out for mealy bugs if you use this product.

    Mealy bugs have a waxy coating which is why most pesticides will not work. You can either find specific pesticide for mealybugs or use lady bugs or Cryptolaemus. Lady bugs are the destroyer of mealy bugs, lol.

    there is something called SB Plant Invigorator that does not leave a chemical residue behind, so I think that would be safe for your plants. Might wanna do some research if you think about using it though. Hope that helps [​IMG]

    Thanks for your suggestion, so far I have just been using azamax as a root drench to make them stop breeding and eating.

    Will that work for a soil drench? I have not seen any in the leaves they are just in the soil
