How did you use the malathion? When I used it I drenched the entire pot, roots and medium in it and then sprayed both the upper and lower sides of the leaves and the pseudobulbs. In short, the entire plant. I wore rubber gloves to protect my hands. I repeated this every seven days for three weeks, and it did the trick.
