What to Do About Insects on Yucca Plant


Anonymous added on May 21, 2016 | Answered

There are hundreds of insects in the center of one of my Yuccas. This is the first year I have seen them and they are very busy moving around. The new leaves are coming up with large white areas on them and brown edges. Any idea what they are and what I can do with them? Brenda

What do the bugs look like? Would it be possible for you to send me a photo of the insects and the leaves? It would aid in my identification. I would say you possibly have a mealy bug infestation. More information on mealy bugs and a course of treatment can be found in the following article:
