    Default cattleya - yellowing leaves

    I have a cattleya I was given about 6 months ago. Recently one of the leaves went yellow and on inspection it turned out I had mealybugs under some of my leaves. I assume the two are connected. I am treating the orchid but Iím still loosing leaves. They go yellow then black. Any assistance would be much appreciated.
    Thanks in advance!
