I know this is a bulb forum, but I also know that many of you grow a lot
more than just bulbs.

Recently, an old enemy of mine has resurfaced: Root mealybugs. I haven't
seen these little scumbags since the 90's, and it's been almost a year
since I've added any plants to the particular collection that's been hit
(which is indoors), so this basically proves what we've all come to accept
- that root mealybugs are a supernatural force of pure evil.

Anyway, it's been so long that I don't remember what to do. Difficulty
level: These are Euphorbia francoisii. So, some pesticidea are out. Any
experienced old hands out there with sure-fire EUPHORBIA-SAFE treatments?

thanks and best regards,
