root mealybugs on succulents

Asked October 26, 2016, 2:05 PM EDT

i have a bayer product that contains .72 % imidacloprid and .36% cyfluthrin. I want to do a soil drench on my succulents prior to bringing them inside. Directions say to use 1 oz/gal for lawns and 3 oz/gal around foundation. Which do i use ? Also, if i use other products how would i determine the dosage for my application.?

Look for a formulation that is labeled for use on houseplants and follow the instructions on the label. If succulents or houseplants are not included on the label, do not use the product on them. Succulents are frequently cheaper than insecticides, so one possibility would be to discard the infected succulents and purchase more. vw
