Mealybugs are extremely difficult to control and once the population surges, you're in for a real challenge. Safer's Insecticidal Soap is quite effective because it has fatty acids which coat the pests and effectively suffocate them. But, repeat applications may be necessary because eggs will continue to hatch if they're on untreated parts of the plant.
