Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - HT NAVI MUMBAI -

One way to re­verse the dam­age caused by mealy bugs is to strengthen the trees by de-con­cretis­ing the area around the trunk of the tree, adding lay­ers of soil to it and wa­ter­ing the area till the start of mon­soon

Lady­bug bee­tles can also be used as an an­ti­dote, as they eat mealy bugs
