Answer: Hi Craig,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Unfortunately, we haven’t got any product that will control pests systemically. Mealybugs take advantage of weak and stressed plants. Help your plants to stay healthy by keeping the soil moist and feeding them regularly with Yates Thrive Natural Citrus & Fruit Organic Based Pelletised Plant Food as a complete, soil-conditioning fertiliser for richer, juicier and more abundant fruit and healthy plant growth.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
