? mealy bug control/destroy

Posted 2063 days ago

our lilly pilly hedge is covered in white, soft yukky-looking things. Have tried Malathion spray without success.
A friend suggested a mixture of cooking oil, liquid detergent & water used as a spray. Has anyone used this method of killing these pests, and if so, how well does it do the job? How many applications required please.
Pretty desperate now.
Many thanks
