Cochineal: Answer: Fight against Cochineal
Dear Mr. Giant Giuseppe,
Thank you for contacting us regarding this issue.
Mealybugs are a large group of insects that affect every part of the plant sucking the sap up to cause their total decay.
In the adult form they are not very mobile and characterized by a protective "shield".
With regard to your request, in the absence of specific references, we can respond to you by exemplifying the main situations as follows:
Orchard / vegetables, however outdoor plants:
The best period is in winter until the end of March depending on the various areas.
Ornamental or indoor plants (greenhouses or buildings)
The fight must continue throughout the year and in the case of heavy infestation it is recommended to physically remove the badges with cotton wool on leaves.
