Mealy Bugs
« on: May 03, 2017, 05:40:45 PM »
This is the time of year that Mealy bugs make a home in the calyx of the  new young fruit.  For smaller container trees, a squirt bottle filled with a horticultural oil (HO) solution works well, even a small brush works well.  For larger trees a sprayer with HO gets rid of them.
