home remedy for scale and mealy bug
Here is something you can try. I had my Dancing Girl Ginger get infested with scale, and my Clivia with mealy bug. The ginger produced succulent type growth so it was hard to put the Q-tip to it without breaking it. I applied so much alcohol and neem oil to the clivia I could of floated the pot
Someone suggested to me that I use garlic. I took elepant ear garlic. peeled it and cut the terminal crown off and put it half way in and half out of the media it was planted in. Here it is 3 weeks later no scale and no mealy bug.
I will try this with my next infestation see it it is still successful. I would like some other growers to try it maybe I am on to something.
