I've a pretty bad infestation of mealy mites. The roots are also infested, boo hiss.
My yellow pear plant is in a container box on my 4th floor apartment balcony. Unfortunately that means I don't have an ideal space for creating a full biosphere of helpful critters, with room for only a couple more plants.
Since it's not ground level, I'm not even sure it'd attract helpful bugs, but maybe?
Can you point me to some treatment ideas? I could just pull the plant, but I'd still have to deal with this on the next one, so I'd like to know what I can do to treat and prevent another infestation.
Grace and peace y'all.
