I'm completely confused to how to determine how many pellets to use to get a good mix for 1 gallon of ready to use spray? My lantanas and Orchids are outside, btw. Also, aphids are destroying my Crepe Myrtles. Black soot everywhere.
Orthene 97 is a small pellet formulation but they are small white pellets that could be considered more of a powder. Orthene 97 is not labeled for congtrolling mealybugs on ornamental plants. If you would liek to use a product that works systemically you may want to consider using Dominion 2L which is labeled for mealybugs as well as aphids.
