so i'm going over my vft's today making sure they're all happy and healthy... one of the traps on my dente had gotten a little black corner a day or so ago so as i went to snip it off i noticed that what i thought was a little fleck of dust inside the trap... kinda...had...legs. panicking, i cut the whole dang stem off and found several more up to an inch or two from the end of the trap. looking closer i found two more of the little buggers on a trap that hasn't even opened yet. no sign of them anywhere else, on the other VFT or the three succulents i have nearby. yet. 99.99% sure they're the mealybugs described on the ever-popular sarracenia.com which i quickly referenced cause i knew i'd seen them somewhere.
so... uh... short of a hack job removing *all* of the infested leaves, how do i kill these things i already moved it as far away as possible from the other plants. grrrrr.
