We are often asked about how to get rid of Scale and also Mealy Bugs which can be a real headache for growers of orchids. Both of these bugs do damage to the plant and both are notoriously hard to beat. Our Natural Two Step Treatment is the answer many have been searching for.
The Two Step Treatment works because it puts two effective natural tools in your hands to combat these troublesome critters (and any others hanging around). You get the proven power of our famous GET OFF ME! Natural Bug Spray (see Testimonials) with the unique spray bottle for reaching under leaves, AND you get our Natural WASH ME! spray kit for physically cleaning leaves and surfaces to remove insects, eggs, residue, salts, sticky substances, grime and water marks. These two together will positively remove unwanted critters and whatever they leave behind.
We recommend treating with GET OFF ME! first, and letting the plant be with that treatment for 24 hours. Try to avoid spraying flowers directly. Next, you will spray leaves and surfaces with WASH ME! paying attention to undersides of leaves, nooks and crannies, stems, stalks, spikes and anywhere tiny critters can be lurking. Each plant must be cleaned with paper towels or cloth/cotton balls/Q-Tips that are thrown out after use on a particular plant. This is best practice to avoid any contamination between plants.
Finally, we like to rinse the treated plant with clear fresh water and our Pro-Mister is a champ for this final and gentle rinse. That completes the treatment, resulting in spectacular, clean, bug free leaves and plants! The best part is, all of this can be done indoors, with no poisons or chemical concerns because you are using mild natural solutions created by us and used by us on our own orchids.
