I have lost a lot of my indoor and most of my out door, deck plants because of Mealybugs. I am ready to buy and start again. But how do I ensure not to have the same problems. Can the millie bugs be on the walls. Because my Pathos vines were about 20-30 feet long and they all died.

It addresses all the steps you can take to control the pests on lots of different kinds of plants. Hope you find it helpful. Here's the web address:
