Controlling scale insects on shrubs

-A A +A
By Susan Brown, County Extension

Why are scales so much harder to treat than other insects? It’s because many of them cover themselves with a protective waxy coating.
Indian Wax Scales illustrate this topic very well. They are easy to identify because they look like chewed gum and are usually found on the stems of plants like gardenia, magnolia and holly. Scale insects feed on leaves or branches of many ornamental plants grown in landscapes and nurseries. Adult females are red and covered with bright, white gummy wax.
