Mealy Bugs

The white kinda fuzzy looking things are mealy bugs.  They are super hard to get rid of and as you can tell from this picture they will kill your plant.  They were on a dwarf wheeler, and sadly they killed it.  I had to dig it up and toss it.  If you can catch them early enough, treat them with Neem Oil.

Here’s another picture from another area in my garden, it show them a little better.  After I dug out the wheeler, I treated all the other plants and the soil in that area with Neem Oil. So far no sign of any more……
