bugs on pony tail palm
have two pony tail palms that have mealy bugs they are indoors.
We understand Conqueror Oil is too strong to use on them. What can
you suggest we use?
your palms with Confidor aerosol spray, available from garden centres
and hardware stores. You will need to repeat spray to totally eradicate
mealy bug. Conqueror Oil can be used at the right strength; it smothers
the insect. Repeat applications will be necessary.
