Mealy bugs on my houseplants — Ladybugs?
I live in a loft space in Philadelphia – the space has massive windows and thus it is perfect for houseplants and since I no longer have an outside garden I can still perform my #1 pastime which is growing and caring for plants – At present I have Several houseplants that have ben infested with those white mealy bugs – I have tried taking them into the shower and rinsing them off, alcohol as well as the soapy water solution – nothing has worked and now they are moving on to my other plants.
My question is this – Will ladybugs eat mealy bugs and can I use them indoors?
If so I will like to order but would need to know how many as it seems like 2,000 would be a lot to release indoors.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have spent a lot of time and money growing and caring for the plants – If needed I have photos I can send.
Thank you very much for your time and have a great day!
