Killing Them Softly with Q-tips

Feel free to sing this song as you murder mealy bugs.

I have taken the liberty to augment the lyrics of Roberta Flack’s hit from the 1970’s.


Inspecting my plant with a hand lens.


Looking for patches of fluff.


Killing them softly with Q-tips.


Killing the mama and her babes.


Smashing the eggs sacs with my tweezers.


Washing off Honeydew with Blue Dawn.


FLOWER sings while she kills pests.
