    I found Neem at Lowes, and it didn't need a surfactant.

    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...?

    This is the first time I've seen this advice. Most people (that I know) have had experiences similar to Swords and react like they found an early harbinger for ebola or black plague. .... and those weren't infestations with Khan's pet ...

    I remember a scene where the Starfleet head honch was eating a bowlful of mealworms and Riker had to feign eating them as well.
