1. Meal bugs are tiny white fuzzy insect take the life juices right out of your indoor office plants. Interior landscapers such as Plantscape Designs Inc of Massachusetts always apply parasitic or predatory insects to eradicate your plant’s insect pests.

 2. Mealy bug females feed on plant sap, normally in roots or other crevices. They attach themselves to the plant and secrete a powdery wax layer (therefore the name mealybug) used for protection while they suck the plant juices. The males on the other hand, are short-lived as they do not feed at all as adults and only live to fertilize the female. Male citrus mealy bugs fly to the females and resemble fluffy gnats.

3. Some species of mealybug lay their eggs in the same waxy layer used for protection in quantities of 50–100; other species are born directly from the female.
