Unfortunately, some mealy bugs have just made it into my carnivorous plant collection...
I had a look on the forum and it seems like the preferred treatment is acephate - something that I can't seem to find here in Australia. I also noted that growers in Britain etc. also seem to use different pesticides.
My question to Australian members is:
What kinds of pesticide are readily available and effective for treating carnivorous plant pests?
I've tried one that had an active ingredient starting with an "I", but it doesn't seem to be having an effect... apparently I have to repeat the treatment weekly for three weeks, but I was hoping to see SOME difference sooner...
Anyway, your help would be much appreciated. Want these mealy bugs gone, as I have a big order of CP's arriving some time this week.
