RE: Pseudococcus

I looked at the website and those are obviously mealybugs, not a bacteria,
so you can ignore any suggestions to treat with penicillin or other
antibiotics.  I googled mealbugs and found out the family is Pseudococcidae.
This may be where the confusion/translation problem came from.  

I don't know much about mealybugs but I'll bet they don't like cold weather.
Is it too cold to put your ferns outside for a few days?  I do that with
greenhouse plants that get aphids in spring.

Good luck.
