MEALY BUGS!!!!!!

Post  shannon1 on 4/8/2011, 5:25 am

Arggg! my beautiful tri colored sage is infested with mealy bugs Evil or Very Mad since they are in a pot at the moment I sprayed them off with the hose two days in a row. Do any of you know a good organic control? Needless to say the pot has been moved well away from the rest of the garden.

I haven't encountered mealy bugs, but I just looked in my Master Gardner manual. As far as organic control it recommends frequent application of insecticidal soap or neem oil. You have to keep re-applying it until the population declines to a tolerable level.
