WHITE BUGS?

WHITE BUGS? Empty WHITE BUGS?

Post by gringal Sat Jul 25, 2020 10:51 am

My patio plants have been invaded by some very persistent bugs I've never seen before. They are about smaller spider size with pure white multiple legs. No webs; they go directly to chomping leaves. Anyone know what they are and the best way to get rid of them?

Do they fly? Are they kind of hairy looking?

I haven't seem them fly. When I first saw them on the flagstones, they looked like spilled spots of white paint, so not really hairy looking.

Dishsoap and water. The boss also adds alcohol and hotsauce.

Look up mealy bugs and see if that is what you have. They can be persistent so it will take multiple treatments of whatever you use.
