Mealbugs got into into my collection thanks to a plant I bought. It's been around for several years, but it was under control. Something happened and this year they have flourished! Most plants that got to spend their summer outdoors are free of it, but those that stayed indoors, especially those that were potted in soil, had the most problems. In the last week, I've taken those plant outside and sprayed them all down with a seaweed, neem oil and soap mixture. I hope that it will take care of those annoying things without having to use chemicals! I've also left them outside for nature to take care of anything I missed. I will soon have to bring them all back indoors and I'm hoping that I will be mealybug free!
