p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Mealybugs anyone?


I don't suppose anyone here knows anything about mealybugs? I found this one (non-communal) in France this summer. Not a brilliant shot but it was only about 1.5 - 2mm long and the leaf was blowing in the wind!

Good one.
Just know they can be a nuisance on indoor plants and cacti.

A case of mistaken identity. I believe this to be a larva of the Mealy Bug Ladybird Cryptolaemus montrouzieri.

You are amazing. I had never even heard of this ladybird. You are absolutely right. I am 90% certain that the adults were the little beetles that were hanging around!

Many thanks

The species is well known and artificially released to control mealy bug (biological control).
