I have a large double glazed conservatory with doors open continually for dogs, If my research is correct the small sticky white cotton wool looking lumps in the leafs axials of many plants . plumbago, vines, and assorted pot plants are mealy bugs?.  I have read that biological deterrents that prey on these are ineffective unless a closed environment , as they fly away, Much as i would like to be 'green', is there a foolproof spray I could use to eradicate this ,
