Mealy bugs on my Krimson Princess
I bought a KP at Home Depot a few months ago and just noticed a few white powdery mealy bugs on it. I sprayed them with rubbing alcohol to kill them. I saw maybe 10 bugs in all but I had been seeing these gnat like bugs for a few weeks before this and I thought it was just damp soil and heat attracting gnats but could they be the male mealys? I heard they look different and fly.
Will putting alcohol on the ones I find be enough? I didnt see any big clumps of them just a few here and there on the vines. Is there anything else I can do to prevent mealy bugs?
