Mealybug infestations can easily be confused as a mold or fungus on your plant due to their white fluffy egg covering. Mealy can grow to be as large as 1/8th of an inch and the eggs will be the size of a pinhead.

Severe Mealy Colonies will result in leafs dropping off your plant, sticky residue on your plant and eventually can kill the host plant.
