What will help me rid my garden of Mealybug and scale?

Expert Answer

Mineral oils, such as McGregor’s Spraying Oil, seep under their protective coating to smother the bugs underneath. Systemic insecticides (Orthene, Confidor) are taken up by plants and transferred to bugs via the sap. Soak the root ball of mealybug-infected pot plants in a bucket of Confidor solution.
