This year has been crazy for us, so we hired someone to mow our grass. When i came home from vacation, 90% of our yard was dead and our rose bushes were half dead. After some research, i found out it was mealy bugs.

It most likely was transfered from an infected yard via the lawnmower. I drove around and noticed a few yards in our area having the same situation. So, i just wanted to get the word out. Especially since they can spread to neihbors yards.

I have learned my lesson, no more mowing service for me.

You can also mix insecticidal soap and horticultural oil together as an alternative approach to killing mealy bugs – use 1 teaspoon soap, ½ teaspoon horticultural oil and 1 litre of water and apply with a spray bottle.
