ur plant doesnt seem healthy, apply good amount of vermicompost.  manure the plant well,  once every week for 3 to 4 weeks.

spray neem oil mixed with vim liquid in 1 litre of water. neem oil 10 to 15ml can be added.


also healthy plants do not have much of pest problem. in my experience mealy bugs are often associated with unhealthy plants.
