Root Mealy Bug Problems??

Posted by joeb004 z3/4 MN (My Page) on

I'm just starting a nasty battle with some Root Mealy Bugs on my cacti and succulents. My flytraps are just waking up now and I would normally put them in the same window sill area as the aforementioned cacti and succulents. I have never had a problem with mealys on my CPs, but I wonder if I am just asking for it by putting them in the same proximity this spring. Any advice?

PS The catci and succulents have just began treatment with a systemic insecticide.

So how are they now (since your initial post?) I, for one, *would* move them away from the others with the infestation. Just to be prudent...
