Bhavani madam, beautiful garden.

 

I have a question on hibiscus - pest management. Oflate, I have been having a lot of mealy bugs on the hibiscus plant. I have been hand picking the eggs and insects and then spraying the whole plant with neem/soap/water solution. But these pests are very resilient, coming back everytime.

 

Any tips on how to completely eradicate it from my garden.

 

Thanks

Lokesh

Hello Lokky,

Use dichlorvos 76% EC to get rid of mealy bugs.
I have treated my hibiscus /mums with this and it is very effective.
The commercial name is "Nuvan".

On a related note i am listing down a set of common hibiscus pests/insects along with the insecticide/pesticide
1.Aphids- Neem oil/soapy water.
2.Thrips-Confidor.
3.Hibiscus Beetle-Confidor.
4.Spider mites- Neem oil/Soapy water applied on the underside of leaves.

By the way.. i am guy and not MADAM Laugh

Regards,
Bhavani Prasad

These are effective pesticides but use them only for ornamentals.

Bhavani, when i started this blog I didnt put my name in it. many used to write mails that start with "dear Madam".
