Insect Eating the Leaves of My Turtlehead


maggiemacfree@yahoo.ca added on July 7, 2015 | Answered

What to do? Some leaves look crinkled, and on others the leaf is eaten between the veins. It has a white cottony substance under some leaves. Have not actually seen a bug on any of the plant. What is it and how do I get rid of it?

Most likely a case of Mealybugs.
Neem Oil is a good treatment plant.
