I have mealy bugs on my orange tree which is fairly large and inside. I'd like to take it outside and use a spray bottle because it would take me forever one leaf at a time. However, it has just started to show blossoms and I'm afraid spraying will stop/damage the blooms. On the other hand, I have lost about 25% of the leaves from the mealy bugs already and may lose the tree altogether. I was away for a while and my plant sitter didn't know what to do. Any ideas/suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks.
