Let Us Take Care of Your Mealybug Problem in Fort Lauderdale

Native Pest Management, a family-owned company founded by third-generation Florida natives, offers complete residential and commercial mealybug control services to homes and businesses throughout Fort Lauderdale.

During our initial visit, we will identify the severity of the mealybug infestation and note any other present pests. We can then determine what cultural management practices (i.e. over-irrigation, mowing too short, or under-fertilization) may be contributing to the host plant material being more susceptible to pest infestations and will recommend corrections to those practices where possible.

How do I know if I have mealybugs on my plants?

Mealybugs are about ? of an inch long, about the size of aphids, so it can be difficult to identify them without a microscope. However, you can look for evidence of mealybug damage on your plants.

Signs of a mealybug infestation can include a waxy cotton substance on the leaves, honeydew, or black sooty mold growing on your plant. Since mealybugs are sap-sucking insects, this can reduce necessary plant moisture, slowing plant growth and causing leaves to drop.

What time of year are mealybugs most common in Fort Lauderdale?

Mealybugs are most active between spring and summer, but can be found year-round in Fort Lauderdale.

How do I get mealybugs off houseplants?

  • Isolate the plant to protect your other houseplants

  • Use a cotton swab soaked in rubbing alcohol to kill the mealybugs on contact 

  • Use soap and water mixed in a spray bottle 

  • Wash leaves off with soap and water

  • Use neem oil mixed with soap and water

  • If the mealybugs live in the soil of the plant, replace the plant with fresh soil.

Do I need to prepare my yard for ornamental pest control services?

No, we do not require any sort of preparation for ornamental pest control services.

What do mealybugs eat?

Mealybugs suck the juices out of plants causing them to turn yellow and wilt.

How often should I get lawn and ornamental services?

We recommend that all clients get monthly lawn and ornamental service. For clients who don’t have a lawn or do not need the lawn care aspect, an ornamental service can be done independently.
