Hami bamboo white powder

JB007September 17, 2012

I notice white powder in the sheath of new leaves. Is this a white fly problem. Does anyone know if this is common with Hami bamboo?

It is probably mealy bugs. If it's not that big of an area, an effective way to get rid of them is to spray insecticide. Just do it a few times in order to make sure they don't repopulate.
