How do I release mealybug destroyers?
I live in Orlando, Florida and have a townhouse with an enclosed courtyard (not screened in). I have a grafted gardenia, a Meyer lemon tree, and a hibiscus, all in large pots in this courtyard. I have treated them for mealybugs many times over the last year but they seem to manage to create bad infestations on the gardenia, in particular.
If I release the mealybug destroyers you sell to the plants will they continue to live on in the plants after the mealybugs are gone and continue to keep future infestations at bay, or will I have to purchase new mealybug destroyers when the mealybugs appear again?
My gardenia is loaded with buds but will not bloom because of the mealybugs causing the buds to drop prematurely. The lemon tree is doing well but I see the mealybug infestation on it.
