  • Looks like your plant may have mealybugs. First wash them with water - that may do it, if not, use an insecticidal soap. Neem oil is another way to attack them.

    Looks like aphid eggs/larva. Call your local greenhouse/supply or Amazon.com and get NEEM oil. IT'll be a concentrate that you mix and spray the plant with. In the meantime, glove up (or just grab them) and smash the suckers before they take over that plant (and every other plant in your home).

    Hello Parv, hope this helps out, you can save it

    Aphid eggs overwinter attached to plants, then hatch as nymphs in the spring. 2 These nymphs then produce eggs asexually, producing more nymphs that grow to maturity in just one week. Then, in the fall the nymphs will lay eggs that contain some male aphids.

    Hello there,

    Sounds and looks like Mealy Bugs. You could try using as I do, a cotton bud dipped into Nail varnish remover to remove them.

    Hi Parv. You can get rid of these nasty mealy bugs with Neem Oil. You should be able to find it on Amazon. There's still time to save your jasmine plant. Good luck Parv. I hope you are well.

    Did you repot your plant before bringing it in? That would help as well

    I have spray with Neem oil in it. It's pretty good stuff. Worked on the Aphids.

      Did you stay with neem oil every day for about 7 days?


      There is a you tube video I watched says you have to pull them off.


      And cover the soil while you do it?

    Those are aphids. Just keep spraying your plant with soapy water to get rid of them.
