killer recipe against mealy bugs!!!
    #1095728 - 11/29/02 12:01 PM (14 years, 9 days ago)

high all!
i just thought i should share this great link with everybody:
http://www.cactus-care.co.uk/index.html
it is simply a miraculous recipe against mealy bugs and i think it might also kill scale. within some minutes after the first application you'll already see them drop off... :laugh:
* i have made one substitution in the recipe. as i haven't found anything similar to methylated spirits in my country i have used a mixture of 9:1 ethanol/methanol instead.

no more mealy bugs for nobody! :laugh::D:D

The only reason there is methanol in methylated spirits is to denature it (ie. make it impossible to drink safely) because it's extremely hard to separate out the methanol once it's mixed in. So it's unnecessary to add it but shouldn't make any difference if you have.

really? i have been wondering that, why the fuck methanol would be required. i just thought it was better to stick to the original recipe with the less substitutions possible...
anyways the rest of the methanol might be util for something someday...
thanks zeta.
