Even this stuff works?

I'm sorry for you. Were it my plant I would chuck it or be sure it's far away from your other stuff while you attempt to battle them. I had my entire Stapeliad collection wiped out by mealies. Passing over other succulents to feed on the Stapelia and Ceropegias who's juicy interiors are apparently like Crack to them. I fought them for months with various things, including neem and tobacco juice sprays, etc. nothing worked permanently and eventually I & the plants lost.
I didn't know CPs could get mealies (I figured it too moist) until my Lowes Darlingtonia started to shrivel down. I unpotted it and guess who...?
I've been having the most severe mealy problem this year. Several trays of byblis liniflora, flytraps, drosera falconeri... they're everywhere. Been bombing them with orthene and hoping for the best.
